RPI WATCH: 2/11/2011

New, 7 comments

If Wednesday night was good to K-State, Thursday night was ... not so much.

Loyola, Presbyterian and UMKC all lost at home to conference foes, and at this point, the likelihood of any of the three having any kind of positive impact on the Cats' RPI is pretty slim.

Far more damaging was Washington State's home loss to Stanford.

Despite some pretty good parts, the Cougars appear bound and determined to be patently mediocre in a thoroughly mediocre conference.

It probably would behoove K-State to go defeat another "quality" opponent, and soon, because Wazzu's RPI is about to plummet.

On the bright side, Gonzaga won another conference road game. If the Bulldogs can get on a roll, they should finish second in the West Coast Conference.

They'll still have to win the WCC Tournament to reach the NCAAs, though.
