BETTER THAN YOU WOULD THINK:
Minnesota – The Gophers have just one loss and three RPI top 50 wins. They’re all the way up at eighth in RPI right now.
Florida State – The Seminoles have 5 wins against the top 65 in RPI vs. just one overall loss.
Wake Forest – They’ve lost all three games against the top 50, but a tough SOS and some road wins have them at 21 in RPI.
Maryland – The Terps might be the luckiest team in America, but luck doesn’t matter much when it comes to assembling a tournament profile. The Terps have wins against Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Georgetown by a combined three points! But that’s three wins over teams that could make the field.
