It was a big win for the Kentucky Wildcats Tuesday, as the win over Ole Miss was Kentucky’s first RPI Top 50 win, bringing the Cats to 1-4 against the group. More importantly for Kentucky, they managed to move from 61 in the RPI last Thursday to 54 today.  As it was mentioned last week, that 7 spot bump takes them from a 12.5% chance to make the NCAA tournament to 51.8%.

As always though, it isn’t just about the RPI, its about the resume and here is a blind tasting of a few schools. Which school would you put in or out?

Team 1 Team 2 Team 3 Team 4
vs Top 50 3-7 1-4 1-5 1-3
vs Top 100 6-10 3-9 3-8 2-5
Worst RPI Loss 216 and 149 74 147 169
Best RPI Win 5 25 27 25
RPI 31 54 45 44

Continue on to see who each team is and if their resume matches that RPI.
