Rank Team Points Record RPI Comments

1 Memphis (4) 20 17-2
2 Thursday night's match-up with UAB should be interesting. It should also be the Tigers only real conference "test" before their March 2nd game vs. UAB in Birmingham.

2 UAB 16 14-3
39 Their 10-game winning streak will be on the line TH night @ Memphis. An upset here could almost ensure a NCAA Tourney bid for the Blazers.

3 UTEP 12 11-5
142 The streaky Miners have 4 straight wins to begin C-USA play and host SMU on Saturday before heading to Houston on Feb. 1st.

4 Houston 7 10-6
79 A rough start in conference play for the Cougars, but only 2 of their next 10 games are against RPI top 150 teams.

5t Rice 4 8-9
219 Two losses last week for the Owls but they stay in our Power 5 rankings tied for 5th place with SMU. With games @ Southern Miss and vs. Tulane this week the Owls should have a good chance of bouncing back with 2 more wins before facing Memphis on Feb. 4th.

5t SMU 4 9-7
228 An OOC game vs. Texas Pan-American before heading to El Paso to face the Miners on Saturday. The Mustangs have a great opportunity to move up in our Power 5 rankings with a big road win this weekend.

Also receiving votes: UCF 1

Added this week: SMU

Dropped out: N/A
