Sounds right. Can't disagree with that. Would have made sense to have Arizona St above us (given their quality wins and undefeated record), but we should still be top 5.

That's about what I expected.

Bobby's team up to #5, received five first place votes!

Three ACC teams in the top seven ... three more between 17-19 ... two more just outside the top 25 ...

Happy for Bobby's team, and they do have some good wins, but I just can't take them seriously yet. We talk about Duke's metrics. Well, ASU's are much worse on the defensive end. It seems a little fluky to me.

I think I'm looking at an appropriate website for RPI rankings...

Games through Dec 10... Duke still #1 (11-1), Arizona State #3 (9-0). Gotta mean something...:confused:

In any case, I'm SO happy for Bobby Hurley and his success so far. Hope he can keep this up!!!

Yeah...they are very much like Duke. The beauty of offense is that it can win you any game (like at Allen Field House). But for consistency, defense is absolutely key.
