RPI WATCH: 3/1/2010

New, 7 comments

Xavier's double-overtime win over Richmond on Sunday simply was gigantic.

It knocked Richmond out of the title hunt and out of the AP Top 25.

Now only Temple and Xavier, which replaced the Spiders in the AP Top 25, remain tied atop the Atlantic 10 standings.

If Temple travels to Saint Louis and loses like every other aspiring A-10 title challenger — except Xavier — then my prediction might come true: The only team to win under the Arch also will win the conference.
