Coming in at #8 this week sandwiched between Washington and Kansas in the polls (ridiculous that we're behind Washington still if you ask me).

More importantly, we're up to #5 in the RPI with Kentucky (9), Kansas (14), and Washington (15) all great wins for us. We have Iowa State (37) and WIchita St. (13) coming up this weekend. Would love a split and then I think a good (nearly) perfect run through conference should get us a top 16 or even top 8 seed.

Yikes. No other Big East team in the top 50 in RPI. It is going to be hard to get a top 8 seed when the conference schedule drags the teams rating way down.

It's true there are no other top-50 teams in the conference this year, compared to 2-3 the past several seasons. On the bright side, the league has 6 teams in the top 100 and only one sub-200 team. So, wins will not drag you down far and it's hard to take a bad loss. The league is deeper and less top-heavy. Should also be easier for Creighton to run the table, although that's never an easy feat in any league. Takes tremendous focus and consistency, hallmarks of only the most mature teams.

Unispiring, BS effort, world record unforced errors loss vs WSU. Figured the rowdy WSU crowd would motivate the Jays but no. Just loved hearing everyone congratulate me on the Jays "good effort" afterwards. Oh well, same thing happened last year and the girls righted the ship

RPI of #5 despite the losses. Target conference record to earn an NCAA seed is 16-2, which would be borderline in. Better than that is comfortably in, 3 losses is borderline out. Basically, repeat last year's performance in conference or up to 2 games worse, and this year you're seeded, even with the Big East down slightly.
