RPI WATCH: 1/26/2011

New, comment

Well, two out of three ain't bad.

A Tuesday night non-conference slate that was marred greatly by Virginia Tech's horrendous loss at Georgia Tech (For a team that lost to Kennesaw State, the Yellow Jackets have been a thorn in the side of mid-level ACC teams, haven't they?) salvaged some dignity with wins by Florida and UNLV.

Georgia really should have knocked the Gators off in overtime, but Mark Fox learned a valuable lesson about fouling when up by three points — DO IT!

When your point guard just fouled out and all you need is to grab a rebound of a missed free throw to win in the first overtime period, you have to foul.

Bet he never screws that up again.

Meanwhile, UNLV logged a nice road win at Wyoming to climb above .500 in conference play for the first time this year.

No need to go into what happened in Boulder. I think we all know the significance of that event and its implications for Saturday's showdown.
