    ISU win over Vandy looks better

    Vanderbilt wins the 2009 SEC WBB Tournament.

    Not that the win looked bad before, just carries a little more weight.

    I think more than anything it showed that auburn was just a little bit overrated - Someone more deserving will get the one seed now, which i think is a good thing

    It also shows how much more dominating the Big12 is this season- which is good news for Iowa State come the NCAA tournament.

    So, your point is? I'm seriously not sure what you are trying to say. Are you saying that the SEC is that bad or are you trying to say that the Big10 is that good or are you saying that Vandy has been playing up and down basketball (which they have)?

    Michigan went 3-15 in the Big Ten this year. Michigan started out strong and finished horrible. They either beat or came close to beating Texas A&M as well, so I dont know what happened to Michigan. Kevin Borseth didn't explode this year, probably the problem. Pat Summitt is in the SEC, and that tells me enough though.

    They lost to A&M by 3. They also beat Notre Dame. Michigan looked like a real contender for an NCAA berth entering the conference season, and they completely crashed and burned.

    Most of Michigan's conference losses were pretty close losses. The Big 12 has much better teams at the top, but the Big 10 had a LOT of teams at about the level of Tech or Kansas (or a bit better) which made it a struggle for the teams that were more at the level of Missouri or Colorado.

    Current RPIs of Big 10/Big 12 teams (* = big 12; x = big 10):

    * Oklahoma 1
    * Texas A&M 7
    * Baylor 8
    x Ohio State 13
    * Iowa State 14
    * Texas 15
    * Kansas St 23
    x Purdue 26
    x Iowa 36
    * Texas Tech 43
    x Michigan St 49
    x Minnesota 51

    x Illinois 120
    x Penn State 122
    * Colorado 124

    So all of ISU's loses came to top 54 RPI teams, and only one at home

    Not too shabby!
