RPI WATCH: 1/2/2011

The only game of interest on New Year's Day was Loyola at Youngstown State.

Luckily for the Ramblers, Youngstown, Ohio, is a football-lovin', steel-makin' kind of city that doesn't have much taste for basketball.

Loyola rolled by 30 to nab its first Horizon League win of the season.

EDIT: Oops, I lied. Forgot that Emporia State played yesterday for the first time since Dec. 18. The Hornets dispatched Southwest Baptist for their fifth MIAA win in six tries. Good for them.
