    Looking forward to see what the new RPI ranking will be on Monday since #12 BYU lost to #24 San Diego, and if that in anyway will affect Wahine’s 19th ranking in addition to #15 Kansas State lost to Texas Tech.

    Not certain but I think Monday’s NCAA RPI will be the last published until after the NCAA Championship.

    Unlike the above, I am not concerned about the RPI. We’re in the ballpark — and we need to finish like we’re playing our last match!

    Over the years, the NCAA (Selection) Committee has stated over and over again that it looks very hard at a team’s last 10 matches — the MO factor — especially in determining the top 16 seeds.

    As I mentioned weeks ago, K-State (21-7) had little chance to host (in spite of its high RPI), and this lost seals the coffin.

    Purdue’s (19-10) double loss this weekend throws out my thesis that it was likely to receive a subregional invite since it is 1 of the 4 predetermined regional hosts. Out the window.

    But of all the defeats this weekend, it is BYU’s that will affect the Bows most. BYU (25-3) was in the driver’s seat and Hawai’i (24-2) was the passenger. Now it’s the other way around.

    San Diego (21-6), which shares the WCC crown with BYU, will attempt to make a case for itself as subregional host — but with 4 losses out of its last 10 matches, it will be a case with a lot of pukas. As for BYU, there’s nothing the NCAA Committee frowns down upon more than a lost in your last match of the regular/conference season. (BYU has a match against a non-Division 1 opponent, which doesn’t count in the RPI and which won’t help its case an iota.)

    Waiting for some of Sunday’s results but the window of opportunity for the Rainbow Wahine just opened again! Ahh….trade winds!

      Don’t know if tomorrow is the last RPI. if I remember correctly they posted it after the ncaa selection last year. I could very well be wrong.
