WKU and Marshall both have a future NBA player. Both split their 1st series. Its gonna be virtually impossible to get 2 teams in (especially this year). UTEP has the best OOC win, but the loss at USM nullified that.2 bid league this year?
I think people were more mad about the choke job more than the loss, I know I was. We should never lose a game that we are winning by 7 points with 45ish seconds to go.IMO this shows we all overreacted to the loss at USM. WKU is supposed to be the class of the league and we’re on their heels.
USM is not even pictured in the tweet (>254 net ranking). It was a BAD loss considering our win at AZ St. and our win by 15 pts the next day and the rankings.IMO this shows we all overreacted to the loss at USM. WKU is supposed to be the class of the league and we’re on their heels.
I don't believe the D3 and NAIA games count towards the ranking (at least that's how the RPI worked). So it's actually better for our computer rankings to play (even lose to!) these D3 and NAIA schools than to BEAT a low-ranked D1 school.8 schools in the top 150 and 9 in the top 154. CUSA is the toughest its been in 10 years
Like I said, "We just don't know how good we are". We didn't lose the first game at USM. We won both games 77-62.Real Time RPI says that we swept Southern Miss
