Can we hit the RPI Jackpot again? Always worth another spin. Got some more key matchups tonight regarding that sort of thing, and some really good games:

Memphis vs Cincinnati
Arizona vs Colorado
Cal Poly vs Long Beach State
Sacramento State vs Idaho
Washington State vs Oregon

---Side Note: Please feel free to list where the games are played at if you would like. I am just going by my Jerry Palm reader from my email. These games are huge, as three of the teams (Washington State, Cal Poly, and Memphis are all near Top 100 status) While the Arizona team still needs to be ranked high so that it can continue validating our loss. The Sacramento State game isn't as big, but would be nice to win.

Other games in the WCC tonight:

Portland @ Loyola Marymount
San Diego @ Saint Mary's
BYU @ Pacific

Would seem to me that we really need Portland, SMC and BYU to all win as well.

Other big games going on around the country:

Nebraska @ Wisconsin
Utah @ Arizona State

Lots of good games tonight. I'll definitely be following again ... Hope all goes well, and GO ZAGS!

Thanks for the effort in putting together this list. I'll also be keeping an eye on Washington v. Oregon State.

Go Beavs. Coach Tinkle has them on the way to number 1.

(Whoever is playing the Huskies that night is my second favorite team.)

That's my third favorite team.

My second favorite team is now Texas Southern.

Any hard nosed team like them, that gets rented out across the country, and plays with the pride they do, those're my guys.

Arizona looking every bit as bad at home against Colorado (missing 2 starters, including their only legit big man) as they did on the road at OSU. At the 12 minute mark of the 1st half I had to quit watching. Something is wrong with the Cats. By the end of the season that might not look like a good loss by GU if they don't figure out whatever is going on. Colorado isn't very good this year. If UA plays like this on Saturday against Utah, they are going to get hammered.

Watching UW lose is my new guilty pleasure. I like the husky eyes staring down at the court from the bottom of the jumbotron.

The debut matchup between Tinkle and Romar should be fun to watch.

I hope we can keep them on the schedule somehow. This will be a good ball club really soon. We need to keep the cougs. They are a borderline top 100 team now. Will be interesting when the rpi numbers update

Starting to look like the WCC POY award will be his to lose. . .those writers who think the WCC is just a cute little league really don't appreciate some of the top shelf talent in the conference.

Totally agree.

We need to keep the Cougs on the schedule. Too natural a rival, too much local interest in Spokane, too much history, etc. Whether they're up, we're up, down, whatever. That series should stay IMO. I'd be just fine with making that our BIS game, too. It seems to me to be the perfect fit for a big Seattle showcase of the 2 eastern teams.

That Oregon WSU game wouldve been a good one to watch!

Another win for EWU.

And Yes, at this point WCC POY is probably Collinsworth with Stacy Davis doing everything he can to stay on his heels as runner up.

it's a joke that the wooden mid-season list picked haws over collinsworth...their value to the team isn't even comparable.

Two Key bits of information on the RPI side since it updated last night:

Texas Southern Moves into the Top 100, and their RPI is now #96. Count it as a Top 100 win folks.

SMU jumped all the way into the Top 15, and their RPI is now #14. Count it as a Top 25 win folks.

m.kennedy has finally shaken the rust off for smu...they should be a tough out from here on out.

Yeah, and they have a very favorable schedule coming up too, so they should be winning lots of games from here on out.

ECU, Tulane, Houston, South Florida, UCF... That's all before they get to play Cincy, UCONN and Memphis again.

Loyola Marymount upsets portland

Portland's season is going down the drain quickly. Disappointing. They have some good players. Doing a face plant in the WCC since their road win at USD.

They were around RPI 110 a couple weeks ago. Now they are treading water, and going into the 180 range or so I think. Really disappointing.

I noticed our held at 6.

I suppose it will be difficult to move much from there.

Too bad. It might have had a chance had some of our teams played better earlier.
