    Default Most Ever Top - 50 RPI Wins?

    Our team currently has 6 Top-50 RPI Wins

    http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/basketb...basketball-rpi

    Is this a record?

    (Mods, feel free to append to the records thread started by SWZag if you feel it is redundant)

    I don't know the answer but thanks for posting, I had no idea it was that many. It sure sounds impressive (is impressive). And, weirdly, we could rack up 2 more. 8 top 50 wins (possibly) and an 8-0 record in top 50 wins ought to shut-up any of the people wailing about a number one in the whole tournament seed.

    Thanks for posting, former1. Here they are:

    #10 Florida
    #12 Arizona
    #20 Saint Mary's
    #37 Tennessee
    #43 Iowa State
    #49 Akron

    Akron needs to hang in there, not lose any more regular-season games.


    :]
    Yeah, we're "The Champs," uh-huh!

    Be cool to see both Florida and AZ to move to top 10. Then it's possibly 8-0, 7-1 with 2 top 10 wins. Additionally, the weird symmetry in this would be that IF SMC beats us, it moves them up to under 15 (surely) and we've suddenly got another under 20 win back in January. I'd rather beat them, but if they win they suddenly jump up, hoisting our Jan victory.
