Well unfortunately not so easy on that one, as that was just the semifinal. S Dakota State is in the other semi tonight and is around 50ish in rpi right now. If SDS gets knocked out, then yes the winner of the tourney would have a lower rpi than LU/BU. Oral Roberts sitting around high 30s before the game tonight. Any chance Roberts still gets in??
Also, while in mid post, Loyola just held on to beat Fairfield. Loyola has a better rpi than LU by about 15-20 spots, and almost even with BU, though they did win at BU. Fairfield winning would have been better. Oh well
