RPI WATCH: 12/23/2009

New, comments

The hit our numbers took from Pine Bluff finally showed up. I think we're still on track for an RPI Top 20 finish, though.

That literally and figuratively was a bad break for Texas A&M last night, and it really was no surprise that they lost to a decent team on the road after something like that. But the Big 12 now is 13-4 against the Pac-10, including 9-3 in the Hardwood Series, so our dominance hardly is in question.

Meanwhile, Kansas and Texas continued to stamp themselves as the best two teams in the country, although I still maintain their order should be flipped in the next AP poll.

Nebraska and Texas Tech also picked up nice, resume-building wins. Other than Colorado and Oklahoma, and maybe Missouri, this conference is looking very strong.

Hit the jump to see how our other opponents fared. All in all, another successful night for the Cats' SOS.
