Few points:

Top 1/3: Minn (30), Pitt (44), and South Dakota State (62)*

SDSU lost Nate Wolters, the #38 pick in the NBA draft, I’d be shocked if they are anywhere near a #62 RPI this year if we even play them.

Second, a HOME game with Rider would be categorized as a “should win” in my thirds scheduling philosophy, and not a toss up. A game @Rider would qualify as a toss-up though. Same can be said for any other roughly 150+ RPI game at home.

Lastly, Vermont just released their schedule and the managed to get St. Joseph’s and Siena to both visit their 3,200 seat gym in Burlington, Vermont. They are a perenially good mid-major, in a tough to get to location, and have mediocre facilities. These excuses are getting old – Lehigh doesn’t want to play anyone besides a few BCS teams OOC every year. It’s philosophical at this point.
