How #pcbb Can Boost Their RPI Today 1/30/14

Last night’s results were 5-2 with Vermont, BC, Vandy, Maine and Maryland winning and UMass and LaSalle losing. PC’s RPI is now at 43 (was 42). UMass losing likely knocks them out of the top 25.

Only 1 opportunity tonight for PC to make some RPI moves (aside from taking care of their own business against Marquette).

Per Jerry Palm’s “Palm Reader”:

Here’s how PC can boost their RPI today:

Game Info: 7:00 PM Marist favored by 5 at time of print

@KevinMcNamara33 – PC’s Fortune misses his military family, but has kept his focus on the court

Fantastic piece by the Projo’s Kevin McNamara. Fortune was never meant to play this many minutes this early in his career. He can be extremely frustrating to watch when he makes the bad turnover but it cannot be denied that he has made some big shots in big moments and this season when he provides double digit scoring, PC is 5-1 with the only loss coming at the Barclays Center against Kentucky on December 1st. He also is a model member of the PC basketball team which is something that is nice to see. Definitely a good read by KMac.
