I’ll bet any amount of money this won’t hold much longer, but the Green Bay Phoenix currently sit atop college basketball’s rankings. The team that lost to Wisconsin and Georgia State, both by 24 points, is just ahead of Kentucky and Duke on the new RPI board.
RPI takes into account the winning percentage of a team’s opponents, so Green Bay can thank its schedule, although I still don’t understand how it’s possible. Wins over one-loss Miami and one-loss Florida Gulf Coast help, I suppose.
I’m taking UK in a head-to-head.
