RPI WATCH: 3/15/2010

New, 2 comments

This is it — the final RPI WATCH of the regular season.

Since the only game of note yesterday was Fort Hays State's loss to conference foe Central Missouri in the NCAA Division II Tournament, I went ahead and updated everyone's RPIs and rankings with the final numbers, in order to justify posting this.

I will continue this feature through the next three weeks (albeit likely with a new name), not so much to follow the NCAA Tournament — because everyone and their dog will be glued to that for the rest of March — but more to follow the obscure tournaments — the NIT, the CBI and the CIT — so no one else has to waste time paying attention to them.
