RPI WATCH: 12/20/2010

New, 19 comments

More rapid than wind sprints his teammates they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
"Now, Brady! Now, Reed! Now, Tyshawn and Johnson!
On, Marcus! On Markieff! On, Withey and Robinson!
To the top of the arc! To the top of the key!
Now screen away! Pick and roll! Pass it to me!"
As dry wheat that before the Kansas wind waves,
When KU meets with an obstacle, chant, "Selby saves!"
So up to the rim-top the forwards they flew,
With a arsenal of dunks, and St. Joshua, too.

Colorado, Iowa State and Washington State all won Sunday (although Wazzu had a bit of an overtime struggle on the road), so there's not much to see here.

Update: Not much to see except the new RPI rankings, that is. Washington State finally made its long-awaited entry into the RPI Top 100, while Colorado and Texas Tech fell into dubious sub-200 RPI status.
