Another week, another bubble watch!
Villanova. Another week, another two wins. Non-conference wins over Kansas and Iowa are strong.
Creighton: Light week. McDermott broke the Red Strom's heart at the end of regulation, for their only game. RPI is in the top ten, and road win over our beloved WildCats was tremendous marquee win for the program.
Should be In:
Work to be done:
Providence: Gave up a huge opportunity losing at Marquette this week. Had a bounce back victory over DePaul. They have two good wins at home, against Creighton and Xavier. They have no accomplishments out of conference or on the road.
Xavier: Team is sliding at the wrong time. Lost their only game this week at HOME, against SETON HALL! RPI crusher. 48 in the RPI. Non-conference win against CIncy looking really good, but they have no road accomplishments this year. Huge week upcoming for this squad, with a road game against Villanova then a home game against the Friars.
Georgetown: What a mess they are going to be for the committee. Their RPI currently sits at 61. Out of conference, however, they have beat VCU, Kansas State, and now MSU. However, they have some egg on their face losing to North Eastern. at home. If the objective of the committee is making the best tournament, and putting in teams that can beat anybody on any given night, it would be very difficult to exclude Georgetown if they were selecting today.
