RPI WATCH: 12/13/2010

The most boring week of basketball season began with a Sunday night that saw Iowa State dispatch an awful Texas Southern by a lower margin of victory than I expected.

Meanwhile, Virginia Tech beat Penn State by an equally small margin.

Ah, December, the month in which most teams win in an underwhelming and ugly fashion.

Note: There will be no RPI WATCH tomorrow because none of our opponents are playing tonight. See? Boring week. I hate finals.
