RPI WATCH: 2/13/2011

Many of K-State's non-conference opponents again proved Saturday to be "not quite ready for prime time" players.

That includes Emporia State, losers of three straight on the road; James Madison, which lost to league-leading George Mason; Savannah State, which lost by 20 at home to Longwood; and UNLV, losing yet another home game.

One of the few bright spots was Florida's sweep of Tennessee, which at least makes that loss look more reasonable. I just wish it could have been a win.

Also notable was Texas Southern's victory at Jackson State, which I think all but locked up a No. 1 seed for the Tigers in their conference tournament.

Meanwhile, Loyola, Presbyterian and UMKC registered unimpressive and largely meaningless conference wins.

In the Evergreen State, Wazzu actually bothered to defend its home court this time, while Gonzaga beat the hell out of Tom Asbury.
