Updating Alabama’s drop in latest RPI rankings

The slide continues for Alabama’s standing in the Ratings Percentage Index (or RPI).

After losing to South Carolina on the road and beating Arkansas at home, the Crimson Tide slipped from 29th to No. 36 in this week’s update courtesy of the NCAA.

The RPI is an important measure used by the NCAA tournament selection committee when selecting at-large teams for the postseason.

The Tide’s best win so far this season came in Puerto Rico over No. 31 Wichita State.  The highest-ranked teams to beat Alabama include Kentucky (No. 5) and Georgetown (No. 16).

Auburn checks in at No. 14o, down from No. 131 a week ago.

The lowest-rated team on the schedule, hands down, is Alabama A&M. It checks in at No. 341 — fourth lowest in Division I.
