ETSU blew out Georgia Southern 79-59. Georgia Southern came into the game at 9-3 leading the Sunbelt Conference with an RPI of 65. They beat Wake Forest at Wake earlier this year.

I believe they are getting help from St. John's and SFA. The SOS gets skewed at the beginning of the year because these mid majors can have good RPI's, but they fall back when conference play starts. Just like Lipscomb for us.

Doesn't RPI factor in opponents and their opponents records as opposed to what their RPI is?

Hope that makes sense

It has seemed like the SEC was slipping a little lately and maybe that's true but this league is currently ranked the 2nd RPI and that ain't going to Cjange much now.

Great news and means a high number dancing

Tonight’s a big one for Missouri, if they are serious about contending for a NCAAT bid this is a game they should win...neutral site game against Illinois currently on ESPN2.
