RPI Watch:  2.3.13

USA TODAY Sports

Cats continue doing what they need to do to win the conference.

Lamar is not very good but they did move up in RPI this week. As did North Dakota, North Florida, Delaware, Florida, UMKC, South Dakota, Oklahoma State, West Virginia, Oklahoma and Iowa State.

Michigan, South Carolina-Upstate, George Washington, Gonzaga, TCU, Kansas, Texas, Texas Tech and Baylor all moved down.

The only teams that really matter for RPI purposes are Michigan, Gonzaga, Florida, OK-State, West Virginia, Iowa State, Oklahoma, Kansas and Baylor. I doubt any of the other teams make it into the top 100 RPI. Other than Kansas you know who to root for in the next month.

Cats still need to keep focusing on improving rebounding and playing smart basketball, then the wins will take care of themselves. The game in Lubbock won't be easy, so focus is important as the Cats can not look past Tech to Iowa State. The Iowa State game is a must win for the Cats, lose the game next Saturday and winning the conference is an uphill battle.

The bracket matrix had K-State as the last 6 this week, with Mizzou just behind the Cats. I expect the Cats to move up after beating Texas and Oklahoma.
