How #pcbb Can Boost Their RPI Today 2/13/14

There were six  games for RPI boostability last night for the Friars.  In those games, the results went 2-3 (BC vs. GTech postponed due to weather) against the Friars. UMass losing at home to a bad George Mason team really did PC no favors from an RPI perspective. PC’s RPI is now at 56 (was 54).

A new portion of this daily post will include the 10 teams with the biggest impact (5 positive plus PC themseleves, 5 negative) on PC’s RPI. This value is via RPI Forecast. For an explanation of this value, click here.
