RPI: REALLY PERPLEXING INDEX

UNC fell to No. 4 in the latest official RPI released by the NCAA. The Heels have company in the top 10 from neighbor Duke at No. 6.

The SEC is only other conference with two in the top 10 (No. 1 Tennessee, No. 9 Vanderbilt). Notably absent are the Big 10 and the Big (L)East.

The bottom drops out after the Big Two for the ACC. Clemson (30), N.C. State (38) and Miami (43) check in next in solid "at-large" range.

Leading the "bubble" contingent is Florida State (58) followed by Boston College (62), Wake Forest (65), Virginia (77), Virginia Tech (78), Maryland (80) and Georgia Tech (83).
Maryland, it's worth noting, moved up 45 spots with its win over UNC. N.C. State's win over Miami was worth 21 spots.

If you are really a stats geek, here’s the full report.
