Zags by 20. I have no doubt.

Interesting that it says Portland is 0-1 vs RPI Top 25 even though it says Gonzaga's RPI is #21

I've always wondered how historical win/loss vs different RPI sets works since RPI is constantly changing. Were we not in the top 25 when they beat us?

I think usually the numbers reflect the current RPI rankings. Doesn't appear to be in this instance though.

GU was #16 on Jan 9th. http://statsheet.com/mcb/rankings/RPI?id=2014-01-09

I was at the game in Portland and for whatever reason, it appeared that the Bulldogs were caught totally unprepared. The game against UP at Spokane should be a snoozer with GU up by double figures the whole way. If the game is very close, or if UP wins, I believe GU's hopes of a win at the WCC tournament or as a serous contender in the NCAA tournament will sink faster than the Titanic.

Go Bulldogs!

I think it's AP ranking under "Top 25" category.

I'd thought that might be it as well, but GU was ranked 22 (http://collegebasketball.ap.org/poll/2014/10) the week of the Portland game, and is 23 this week (http://collegebasketball.ap.org/poll/2014/14) in the AP poll.

Yep, appears to be an error as far as I can tell. They played (and lost to) then #1 Michigan St. Portland's schedule page (http://statsheet.com/mcb/teams/portland/schedule http://statsheet.com/mcb/teams/portland/schedule) on Statsheet shows the proper rankings at the time of the games, but it doesn't look like it got included in the head-to-head on Statsheet. I've seen that before, so I wouldn't trust the "vs. top 25" category there. The RPI top 50 category looks correct, however.

Point spread is -15.0, BTW.
