RPI WATCH: 1/9/12

As always, Big 12 Conference games will be discussed later today in BIG 12 OUTLOOK.

West Virginia probably gave us the biggest non-con boost by upending then-top-10 Georgetown at home, while Alabama crept back closer to the polls by handling Georgia in Athens.

Long Beach State, North Florida and UTEP also posted nice conference wins. But while North Florida came out on the right end of an overtime game, Charleston Southern did not.

And unfortunately, George Washington, Loyola and UMES all reside at the very bottom of their conferences, so don't look for much help there, while Virginia Tech appears bound and determined to stay on the bubble, losing to Wake.

All in all, though, with four wins over top-50 teams (three more than we had last season as a No. 5 seed, by the way), this is beginning to look like Frank Martin's best tournament profile yet. But there's still more work to be done.
