I want to be the first UD fan to send my congrats to SLU for their win over Alabama A&M...who has an RPI of 275 out of 329.

Great win for the program.

Good Luck with Michigan tonight (RPI of 22). You'll need it.





SLU is a good team and deserves to be in the NCAA Championship Tournament, and I think getting to Rd 2 is great for their program and A-10 Volleyball. But give me a break...let's report an accurate picture of this win. The closest A-10 teams to Alabama A&M are LaSalle at 286 and Charlotte with an RPI of 258. Looks like SLU beat a team that would have finished about 9th in the A-10. AAM's record was 14-16 going into the SLU match. If they ranked all 64 teams - they surely would have been #64 - the only team in the dance with a losing record. Great win for SLU.
