RPI WATCH: 3/5/2011

New, 2 comments

Friday gave us a mixed bag in conference tournament action.

North Florida continued an improbable run to the A-Sun championship (although from the looks of things right now on ESPN2, that's probably about where their road will end) by knocking off its second top-three seed in two days.

Good for the Ospreys, who could be a pretty solid team next season.

But that was offset by James Madison's surprising loss to 11th-seeded William & Mary in the opening round of the CAA Tournament.

Not that the Dukes had serious NCAA hopes anyway, but at this point, even an NIT bid might be a long shot for a team that I'm not convinced actually lived up to its potential.
