RPI WATCH: 3/4/2010

New, 3 comments

For a Wednesday, last night was relatively quiet. Seems like everyone is playing Tuesday or Thursday games this week.

Xavier all but locked up a share of the A-10 title by dominating Fordham on the road. The Musketeers now only have to face terrible St. Bonaventure at home for Senior Night and they'll claim at least half of it.

And Alabama logged a surprising win at South Carolina, which apparently is only good at home when playing Kentucky. So that was good for our RPI.

In other Big 12 action (ignoring The Game That Shall Not Be Mentioned Again), Texas A&M essentially claimed a bye, handling red-hot Oklahoma State at home.

It was the inevitable letdown game for the Cowboys, but let's give some credit to the Aggies, too. They've only lost one home game all season. That's better than us, after all.
