January 2, 2013 by Doug Smock

First, be sure to follow me @dougsmock for whatever courtside wisdom I can bat out, 140 characters at a time.

This updates a list I did last week. I don’t think Marshall is the 10th-best team in the league, but how many spots should I lift them when I do my pre-conference season pecking order?

With no games anywhere today, let’s check RPIs of the 12 teams, along with the highest RPI wins and the cruddiest RPI losses.

Southern Miss (9-4) 50 (best win Western Kentucky 92, worst loss New Mexico State 167)

Memphis (9-3) 95 (best win Northern Iowa 108, worst loss 29 VCU)

UTEP (6-5) 105 (best win Oregon 53, worst loss Clemson 198)
