Men's Hoops. Past Opponent Land

Earlham College

Earlham is 2-8, not counting the BG game, which was an exhibition for them.

South Florida (9-5, RPI 183)

Lost at home to Detroit.  Beat Alabama and Florida Gold Coast at home, too.

Wisconsin (13-0 RPI 3)

Beat Oral Roberts and St. Louis (both of whom beat BG) as well as @Virginia.

Saint Louis (12-2 RPI 48)

Only losses to Wisconsin and Wichita State.  Also won @Vanderbilt.

Presbyterian (4-10, RPI 350)

Best win is against #268 UNC-Greensboro.  Only 2 D1 wins.  Four losses against teams with RPI 293 or above.

Oral Roberts (6-7, RPI 64)

RPI might be a little cock-eyed on this one.  They have 4 D1 wins.  Lost to Akron 74-64 at the JAR.

WKU (8-5 RPI 135)

4-2 since losing to BGSU.  Losses to Louisville and Ole Miss, with a nice win over Southern Mississippi.

Xavier (11-3, RPI 25)

OT win over BG was first win in a (still current) 6-game winning streak which includes wins over UC, Alabama, Wake Forest and St. John's.

North Dakota (3-8 RPI 186)

They have 1 non-d1 win since the BG game, with losses to South Dakota State and University of Northern Colorado.

Morehead State (9-6, RPI 139)

Won against South Dakota and a non-D1 opponent and lost to Tennessee since the BG game.

Detroit (7-8 RPI 170)

Beat a non-D1 opponent and #348 Bethune-Cookman since BG game.

Wright State 8-7 (RPI 299)

No games since beating BG.

Which means....

BG's best win...Western Kentucky
Worst loss...Wright State
Biggest missed opportunity...Xavier and it isn't close.
