Washington improves slightly in RPI

A split at home against the Arizona schools pushed the Washington men’s basketball team to 69 in the RPI. The Huskies were 73 last week.

There’s still enough games (nine in the regular season), big-name opponents and road games on UW’s schedule for it to make a serious climb in the index. The NCAA awards 31 automatic bids and 37 at-large berths to the 68-team tournament. The selection committee uses the RPI as one of several criteria for determining who makes the Big Dance.

Obviously teams among the top 40 in the RPI have a good chance of making the tourney.

Here’s where the other Pac-12 teams rank: Arizona (4), Colorado (25), Oregon (27), UCLA (45), Arizona State (63), Stanford (67), California (70), USC (110), Oregon State (162), Washington State and Utah (165).

In the national rankings, the Associated Press and coaches poll are aligned on teams 1-7: Indiana, Florida, Michigan, Duke, Kansas, Gonzaga and Arizona.

It’s the fifth straight week there is a new No. 1 in the AP poll.
