KANSAS STATE RPI WATCH: 11/29/14

In which non-conference opponents Bradley and Tennessee lose to conference mates TCU and Kansas, respectively, while Baylor, Georgia, Long Beach State and Oklahoma all lose.

Oklahoma's loss to UCLA in the Battle 4 Atlantis championship game was nothing to be ashamed of, but the Sooners showed they still have some flaws.

Two sets of common K-State opponents played each other Friday: Kansas beat Tennessee pretty handily in Orlando, while TCU beat Bradley in a pretty ugly game that makes me think neither team is that good.

In other Big 12 action, both Baylor and Oklahoma were downed in their tournaments. There was no shame in the Sooners' loss to the No. 2 team in the land, but the Bear's defeat by Illinois in the semifinals was eyebrow-raising.

Non-conference-wise, Texas Southern got its first win over woeful Lamar, but Long Beach State lost again and Georgia dropped its second straight. At least Texas A&M is taking care of business.
