    Iowa State's RPI, Big 12 standing

    Here's the most up to date RPI showing ISU at #33. We'd be in the 20s if we'd beaten OU. I also found it interesting on the OU website they were saying their win over ISU was "the program's only win over a ranked opponent this season."

    Looks like the remaining games against Texas, TTech and KSU are critical and will determine everything things about post-season seeding (i.e. Joe Lunardi's #5-#9). KSU has had a cupcake schedule thus far and will start to lose a lot now (they play Texas tomorrow end the season with Baylor, Iowa State and TA&M in succession). RealtimeRPI has KSU finishing 9-7 and ISU finishing 9-7, which I think is wrong, we'll do better (they predict ISU losing every road game the rest of the season).

    If we can manage to beat Texas at home, TTech on the road and KSU at home, it will make up for one possible stumbling/off-night like a loss to KSU on the road.

    Unlike the last few seasons where we had at least one marquee upset against a highly ranked team, this year we won't have that and don't have that opportunity ahead of us unless we shock someone in the Big 12 Tournament, which is often too late to dramatically affect NCAA seeding anyway.

    I know it's pointless to think about it, but I'd love to see this team we have on the court this year with Alison Lacey on the floor too, feeding the post and handling the opposing guard pressure. *sigh*

    Our point guard needs to be taller IMO. Not sure how you fix that. Lacey was a horse.

    Re: Iowa State's RPI, Big 12 standing

    In total agreement here! I like Loz's game and I think she is GREAT player. Unfortunately, in our system, the PG needs to be taller. BF only runs sets and these sets used to consist of passes over the top of the defense to a wing player for a three. They also consisted of the PG dibbling ALOT and downlow screens that the post flashes open for just a couple of seconds. Loz simply can not see over the defenders to get the ball downlow fast enough.
    2 years ago Ezell started the season at the PG spot and Lacy was the SG. We really were struggling until BF switched that up. Lacy was able to find the open players better due to her height over EZ.

    Re: Iowa State's RPI, Big 12 standing

    Primary PGs in the Fennelly era:

    Stacy Frese: 5'8"
    Lindsey Wilson: 5'9"
    Lyndsey Medders: 5'9"
    Heather Ezell: 5'9"
    Alison Lacey: 6'0"
    Lauren Mansfield: 5'7"

    Mansfield isn't that short, but going from 6'0" to 5'7" is a pretty big shift. We got spoiled.

    Future PGs:
    Nikki Moody: 5'9"
    Julie Vanloo (maybe): 5'7"
    Kidd Blaskowsky: 5'8"

    I would say that 5'7'' is over stated. Same with EZ - 5'9''.... No way

    Re: Iowa State's RPI, Big 12 standing

    collegerpi.com has us at 28 we were 23 before the loss to OU. If VA had pulled the upset last night, we would have had a boost. VA and TCU were helping us, but now they are going down, also, Iowa's losses aren't helping us either.

    I don't know for sure which RPI the NCAA uses, but I have heard BF reference collegerpi.com a couple times, so I am guessing that one.

    NCAA has their own RPI. A win that is suddenly looking better on our schedule is UNI. They are in the drivers seat in the MVC, and have two wins over Missouri State who is in the top 50. If they win out the regular season in the MVC, they will be a top 50 RPI team, and IIRC more weight is placed on road wins. Right now, the Michigan win still is big, but they have faltered as of late, so it may not be that much help by the end of the year.

    Re: Iowa State's RPI, Big 12 standing

    By way of comparison, we finished last year at RPI 29 11-6 in the conference and 23-7 overall. We turned that 11-6 conference record into a 4 seed and ended a successful season with a loss on the second weekend of the NCAA tournament. The seed may have been helped by our hosting the first weekend. We could have a similar ending this year, which I think will also be seen as successful. However, a 5-6 seed is more likely. I'm eager to see how we finish - tough games on the road and at home remain, starting at Lawrence.

    Re: Iowa State's RPI, Big 12 standing

    A 4 or 5 seed means you face the 1 seed in the third round. A 6 seed means you likely face the 2 seed (although you have to beat a 3 seed to get there). I don't mind a path that keeps us away from UConn, Baylor, Stanford, and Duke as long as possible.

    I agree, a 4/5 is the best route to a sweet sixteen spot, but, a 6/7 has better chance to get further.

    Mostly her junior year. Medders was the primary point when O'Neil was a senior. O'Neil was very similar to Ezell in that respect, and I should have included her.

    Similarity to Ezell:

    Soph year: mostly shooting guard with a great senior PG (O'Neil: Wilson; Ezell: Medders)
    Junior year: mostly point guard as the PG-in-waiting splits time between PG and SG (O'Neil: Medders; Ezell: Lacey)
    Senior Year: starting SG and backup PG for the former PG-in-waiting

    have to agree. in the tourney seeding doesn't really matter except for 1st round. After that all games are tough, but I would really prefer to avoid UConn, Baylor, Stanford, Duke, TN, and A&M.

    On a side note, WV looked real tough last night against UConn, but couldn't pull it out.
