Kentucky Gets A Little RPI Help
Posted by Matt on January 29, 2008
No, not Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute from which the snazzy logo from above was conveniently stolen from but ratings percentage index (RPI) — the fancy number that makes, or breaks, a college basketball team’s NCAA Tournament chances.
The ‘Cats have moved up to 131, up roughly five spots from yesterday, thanks to San Diego’s upset of #20 and two loss Saint Mary’s. The Toreros pulled off their second impressive upset of the season by beating the Gaels 63-44 at home. Unfortunately that only brings USD to 11-11 on the season but Kentucky needs all the help that they can get.
By my count, Kentucky still has five games left against teams in the Top 50 of the RPI with a sixth game against #53 Mississippi State later this season as well. Follow all of the day-to-day RPI action for your team at Ken Pomeroy’s link below.
