RPI WATCH: 2/27/2011

I don't know that Saturday could have gone much better for the Cats.

In addition to the huge win over Missouri (our second over an opponent with a top-50 RPI) and Virginia Tech's upset of Duke (moving the Hokies into the RPI top 50 and giving us a third such win in one fell swoop), the only losses by K-State non-con opponents belonged to Duke (the benefit outweighed the harm), Florida (a fairly inconsequential loss at Kentucky), Loyola (a lost cause) and UMKC (which Matt Brown deserves for being such a douche).

Those were more than balanced out by Alcorn State's fifth win of the season, Emporia State's upset of D-II No. 17 Fort Hays State, Gonzaga finishing in a two-way tie for the regular-season WCC championship, James Madison popping VCU's bubble, UNLV's 10th conference victory and Virginia Tech's huge Gameday win...

...not to mention Texas Southern's continued SWAC dominance. (Fun fact: Texas Southern now has a higher RPI than Texas Tech. Your move, Kirby Hocutt...)

Regular-season conference play has ended for Emporia State (which finished 12-10), Gonzaga (11-3), James Madison (10-8), Loyola (7-11), North Florida (10-10), Presbyterian (7-11) and UMKC (9-9). Let the conference tournaments begin!
