Big Sky RPI: 12-28-09 & Looking forward

Not to beat a dead horse but this has been a banner year for the Big Sky Conference teams and the conference in general. The men’s teams have had their best performance in their pre-conference schedule in 10-15 years. Right now depending on what poll you look at the Big Sky conference is ranked between 15-17th among all conferences. That is 5-10 places higher than where they have been in the recent past. Fullerton should enjoy the ranking while it last because as soon as conference games starts that ranking should start dropping.

Right now the Big Sky Conference is rated higher than Big West Conference, Sun Belt Conference, Southern Conference, Ivy League, and Southland Conference to name a few.

Going into league just about everyone is projecting Montana and N. Colorado as the top team, with Eastern Washington and Sac. State as bottom of the league. Montana State is holding steady as the number 3 team, but Weber State is coming on strong. Portland State on the other hand seems to be falling. Idaho State I think is a sleeper team. They have played a top 50 schedule and are loaded with talent.

On the women’s side of the conference things seem to be falling into line with a 22 ranking. The thing that is different is that the Lady Griz are no where to be seem at the top of the RPI rankings The RPI rankings seems to be suggesting that Selvig’s team may not even make the conference tournament. The thing though to remember about Selvig’s teams is that he builds then first and foremost for conference play. Selvig does not always recruit the fastest players,- which would help him out of conference- but goes for talent, which helps him over power Big Sky schools. Look for the Lady Griz to bounce back the question how far can they?
