2020 CBB Final Rankings: ICT Zone National Champions

03/17/2020

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. Last season was the first full debut season and it saw Marshall University lift our National Championship.

This year, with all the wildness of college basketball, we had no idea who would finish as National Champions. While Kentucky kicked off the season at number one, that distinction only lasted one week before their shocking loss to Evansville, which saw the Mid-major from Indiana take over the number one spot. From that point on, things continued to change at an unprecedented pace. It was anyone's National Championship to win, but after the Coronavirus cut the season short, your National Champions are the Providence Friars. The 19 and 12 team peaked at the right time, and after rising to first in week 16, the team never looked back.

Congratulations to the Providence Friars, your 2020 ICT Zone College Basketball National Champion.

USA Men's Basketball heads into these Olympic games with less certainty than they've had in years, which leads me to believe they'll fall short of a gold medal. The squad is too thin, there is no clear leader, and the roster feels more like a mix and matching of stars than an actual roster.
