Arizona, Kansas State in need of a quality victory

By Eric Prisbell

Notre Dame's victory at Pittsburgh earlier this week addressed a glaring hole in the Irish's NCAA tournament resume: the absence of a true road victory. As we approach February, here are other top 50 RPI teams that need to address another specific hole in the resume: the absence of a top 50 victory: (all records include games only against division I teams.)

Three of these teams - everyone except Wichita State - would likely be in the NCAA tournament if the season ended today. But these are all teams that need to start beating some quality opponents.

Record: 16-4
RPI: 24
SOS: 45
Best win: California (55)
Worst loss: Oregon State (234)

Cleveland State
Record: 16-3
RPI: 32
SOS: 121
Best win: Kent State (82)
Worst loss: Valparaiso (58)

Wichita State
Record: 15-4
RPI: 44
SOS: 71
Best win: Indiana State (87)
Worst loss: Northern Iowa (69)

Kansas State
Record: 13-7
RPI: 46
SOS: 21
Best win: Gonzaga (64)
Worst loss: Colorado (89)
