RPI WATCH: 2/7/2010

Almost half our opponents played each other Saturday. Those games basically were a wash for our RPI, but for perception's sake, it was important that certain teams beat others and keep themselves in the NCAA Tournament discussion. In all cases, I think the matchups worked in our favor:

  • Cleveland State 59, Loyola 56
  • Dayton 90, Xavier 65 (Xavier previously beat Dayton, which faced a must-win situation at home to stay on the bubble)
  • IUPUI 70, Western Illinois 42
  • Kansas 75, Nebraska 64
  • Missouri 84, Colorado 66
  • Oklahoma 80, Texas 71
  • Ole Miss 74, Alabama 67
  • Texas A&M 78, Baylor 71
  • Texas Tech 81, Oklahoma State 74

But it also was a costly weekend — Alabama, IUPUI and Washington State all fell below the 100 threshold in the RPI.

Now it's double or nothing for K-State — all of our RPI Top 100 wins also are RPI Top 50 wins.
