Week Eleven RPI
Sitting atop the Conference Power Rankings for the eleventh straight week, the SEC continues to lead the way as the nation's best conference. The SEC will likely send 10 or 11 schools to a Regional. Missouri, Tennesse, and Florida will have to battle to keep their confernce record above .500 despite easily having the RPI necessary to make the tournment.
Standing pat in second place, the Big XII looks to get at least five schools into a Regional. Surprisingly, TCU currently sits at the bottom of the RPI standings in the Big XII, and the Horned Frogs will have to win the Big XII Tournament to make a Regional. Just behind the Big XII, the ACC moves up a spot in this week's Conference Power Rankings. After nice runs by Louisville, Georgia Tech, Miami, and North Carolina, all of these schools are in position to host if they can keep up the same pace they've been on.
Coming in fourth, the Pac-12 continues to be top heavy. UCLA, Oregon State, and Stanford lead they way, and the battle between these three teams at the top of the standings will be fun to watch as the regular season winds down. The American stays in the five spot but is in danger of becoming a two-bid league. Houston is teetering on the bubble with its 48 RPI.
