Welcome to a new feature on the WBN. We know it was a busy week and you may have missed some things on the site, so we are doing an ” In Case You Missed It ” Feature on the weekends to highlight some of our best/more interesting stories during the past week. It gives you a chance on some things you may have missed. Don’t worry, we are not going all rerun on you during the weekend, this is just an added feature. In Case You Missed It.

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.
