BG Men's Hoops Opponents....where are they now?

Earlham College

Earlham is 5-18, not counting the BG game, which was an exhibition for them.

South Florida (12-14, 3-10 in AAC, RPI 174)

Lost at home to Detroit.  Lost 8 of last 10.  Big win over SMU.

Wisconsin (21-5, 8-5, 4th in Big 10 RPI 6)

 Back on right track.  Won 4 in a row over @Illinois, MSU, Minnesota and @Michigan.

Saint Louis (23-2, 10-0.  1st in A-10 RPI 11)

Only losses to Wisconsin and Wichita State.  Won 17 straight games.

Presbyterian (6-21, 2-10 in Big South, RPI 350)

One of the five worst teams in D1, RPI-wise.  Only 3 D1 wins and the best was over a team with a 239 RPI.

Oral Roberts (13-13, 7-6, RPI 183)

When we last did this review, we thought their RPI was a little high and it was.  Based on their RPI, the win over BG was their 2nd best of the year.

WKU (17-9, 9-4 Sun Belt (2nd place) RPI 140)

This win looks really nice for BG.

Xavier (17-8, 7-5 (3rd in  Big East), RPI 48)

This loss will join several heartbreakers for the Falcons.  Beat Providence and Georgetown, but lost 5 of last 9.

North Dakota (11-13, 8-6. Tied 3rd in Big Sky, RPI 234)

Have lost 3 of their last 5.

Morehead State (18-9, 9-3, T-3 in OVC, RPI 119)

This win--on the road--is BG's best non-conference win.  They have won 7 out of their last 9, with the only losses being to Belmont.

Detroit (12-15, 5-7 T-6 in Horizon RPI 198)

Playing better, won 4 out of last, including winning @Milwaukee and @Valpo.

Wright State 15-13, 7-8 , 4th in Horizon RPI 207)

Big win is @Cleveland State.  Lost 4 of last 6.

Which means....

BG's best non-conference win...Morehead State
Worst non-conference loss...Wright State
Biggest missed opportunity non-conference...Xavier and it isn't close.
