Rank Team Points Record RPI Comments

1 Memphis (5) 25 24-2
5 Yawn. Another blowout win, even without Shawne Williams. We're running out of complimentary phrases to put here...

2 UAB 18 19-5
53 They obviously didn't help themselves with the loss @ UTEP, but they've still got an RPI in the mid 50's, with a solid (albeit not spectacular) resume.

3 UTEP 17 17-6
85 They're 9-1 in their last 10 and just 1 loss in the conference. They've looked very good against C-USA competition. A win this week against Memphis will plant them squarly on the bubble for the Big Dance.

4 Houston 10 18-6
55 9-1 in their last 10 and 8 wins in a row. After a slow start in C-USA play they've torn through the conference, have an RPI in the 50's and are 2-0 against teams with a RPI of 50 or better. A strong finish could still get this team an at-large bid.

5 Rice 5 11-13
194 At 5-6 they're the next closest CUSA team to having a .500 in conference record. Plus Houston would really like the Owls, and UCF, to finish strong. Right now their RPIs are in the 190's, keeping Houston from having the appearance of two bad (200+RPI) losses.
