UC's RPI had a slight boost from a 59 RPI to a 56 RPI after last night's victory over Notre Dame. More importantly, however, is moving to .500 in the Big East with that win. Here's some bubble conversation ...
Cincinnati [14-8 (5-5), RPI: 56, SOS: 22] The Bearcats still have some hefty work to do, but they moved a step closer by beating Notre Dame 93-83 on Wednesday night. They moved to .500 in Big East play with their fifth victory in their past seven games and probably knocked the Fighting Irish out of contention for an at-large bid. Cincinnati has a couple of so-so nonconference victories (UAB and UNLV) and beat Georgetown at home. But the Bearcats probably need to finish better than .500 in Big East play to garner serious consideration.
