The 2020-21 ICT Zone College Basketball Rankings

11/30/2020

The College Basketball Season is finally back after the world was thrown into chaos by the pandemic. With the return of College Basketball comes the return of our elite ranking system.

Here at the ICT Zone, we rely on a satirical and unconventional ranking system. No analysis, no subjectivity, if a lower-ranked team defeats a higher-ranked team, then the two teams automatically switch rankings. After all, you're only as good as your last game. 

With great power comes great responsibility, so with that ranking system, it means it is our duty to also award what we call the ICT Zone College Basketball National Championship

Our National Champion is just whoever is in first place of our rankings come the end of the college basketball season.

Marshall University was our National Champion in 2019, Providence College won last year's version. But for whatever reason, neither team acknowledged that they won our National Championship. 

We think it's time we start sending a banner to our National Champions, they need to know what they've accomplished is on par, if not arguably bigger than winning March Madness.

With that said, here is our first ranking of the season. Rhode Island, Virginia Tech, Richmond, and San Diego State are the big winners.

The last few decades of women's college basketball were synonymous with the dominance the top programs showed. It was not uncommon to see the four #1 seeds make the final four. But we are headed for a new era that is going to flip the script altogether. A new era of parity, an era where the talent is spread evenly across the country. ...
