SEC RPI Watch – 2/5/13

gfx - by the numbersWith everyone turning their attention to recruiting this week, we’re a day behind with our usual RPI check of SEC basketball squads.  The extra day hasn’t made much difference.

The Southeastern Conference still looks to be a three- or four-bid NCAA Tournament league to us.  The conference’s #8 ranking in the RPI just doesn’t inspire confidence that the SEC will be rewarded come Selection Sunday.  After all, while some other leagues have been getting six to nine bids in recent years, the SEC has consistently stayed in the three- to five-bid range since 2009.  Mike Slive’s league last grabbed six invitations in 2008.  So if the NCAA selection process has viewed the SEC as being so-so to sub-par in recent seasons, there’s no reason to believe this year will be any different.

Here are this week’s numbers:

 

  School   RPI   SEC Record   Div. I Record   Last Game
  Florida   3   8-0   18-2   78-64 W UM
  Missouri   34   5-3   16-5   91-77 W AUB
  Ole Miss   44   6-2   17-4   64-78 L @UF
  Kentucky   48   6-2   15-6   72-68 W @A&M
  Alabama   60   6-2   13-7   58-54 W @VU
  Texas A&M   78   3-5   13-8   68-72 L UK
  Tennessee   84   3-5   11-9   60-73 L @ARK
  Arkansas   104   4-4   13-8   73-60 W UT
  LSU   115   3-5   12-7   69-68 W @MSU
  Georgia   130   4-4   10-11   67-56 W @USC
  Vanderbilt   154   2-6   8-12   54-58 L ALA
  S. Carolina   200   2-6   12-9   56-67 L UGA
  Auburn   218   2-6   8-13   77-91 L @MU
  Miss. State   235   2-6   7-13   69-68 L LSU

 

Streaking

Florida has won 10 games in a row and the Gators continue to hold each of their opponents below its scoring average.  Meanwhile, Auburn and Mississippi State have both dropped six games in a row after getting out to 2-0 starts in league play.

 

MrSEC.com NCAA Tournament Projection as of 2/5/13

Florida would be a #1 seed if the tourney began today.  Missouri, Ole Miss and Kentucky would get bids as all have RPI scores inside the top 50.  Alabama at #60 would be pretty far back on the bubble.  No one else would receive consideration.  At this point.
