Updated Conference RPI

Conference USA didn't do itself any favors last week, as it saw some of its better teams drop games that would have helped boost their RPI's higher than they are now. UAB, although they had virtually no chance at Duke, got blown out at Cameron Indoor, Memphis got blown out by Tennesse, and UCF who had climbed all the way up to no. 13 in the RPI gave one away to a rebuilding Houston team. Here are the RPI rankings for Conference USA teams this week. 

  1. UCF                    RPI 17
  2. UAB                          43
  3. Marshall                     46
  4. Memphis                    75
  5. Southern Miss            79
  6. UTEP                         81
  7. Tulsa                        123
  8. Tulane                      192
  9. Rice                         194
  10. East Carolina            199
  11. Houston                    201
  12. SMU                         291

Conference USA is making some moves in the RPI. Every team, except Memphis and Rice, is moving up in the rankings. Although some big moves were made by UAB and Marshall to get into the top 50, the biggest move may have been the one made by the conference as a whole. Conference USA made the jump from 11th to 9th in the overall conference RPI rankings, and they are quickly approaching the 8th spot which would put them behind the Power 6 conferences and the MWC. Not a bad spot to be in. This is definitely a very talented league, but one thing needs to happen. Keep winning games. Especially at the top. Our top teams need to continue to rack up as many wins as possible, and not give them away to our bottom feeders. Ideally, we'd like to have every one of our teams inside the top 200, but since that doesn't seem likely, we need as many teams as possible inside the top 100.
