UMass Helps Out

BC's win over UMass 2 weeks ago looks a little better after the Minutemen knocked off Louisville at Louisville tonight, 72-68. The Cardinals' RPI was 34 coming into the game, so the win might vault UMass (126 before the game) into the Top 100. Let's hope it does and they continue to climb. A team's record against the Top 50, Top 100, etc. is one criterion the NCAA selection committee weighs heavily when deciding both invites and seeding in March. BC currently has two wins against Top 50 squads (Michigan State and Maryland). By the way, UMass has a decent team this year; they were picked by the A-10 coaches to finish second (behind Xavier) in the pre-season conference poll.
