More surprising RPI help for Huskies

The way the Huskies are playing right now, their RPI might not matter all that much come March.
But just in case, they got a little more help in surprising fashion tonight when Morgan State went to College Park and shocked host Maryland 66-65.
That’s the same Morgan State team that UW beat at home 81-67 last week. That game looked a little ugly, but UW coach Lorenzo Romar insisted afterward he thought it was a great test for his team entering conference play, and if tonight is any indication, maybe Morgan State is a little better than was thought.
Tonight was Morgan State’s first game since losing to the Huskies.
Maryland isn’t exactly great in the RPI, standing at 75.
But every little bit helps as the Huskies are at 38 and rising tonight, according to RealTimeRPI.com. That puts them third in the Pac-10 behind Cal (11) and Arizona State (16).
