Which conference’s teams have more non-conference wins vs. the RPI top 50…Big XII or Big West?

You’re wrong. OK, it’s a trick question, each one has only 3 top 50 wins to their credit. But the Big West has had just 35 non-conference wins overall vs. 94 for the Big XII (do they really deserve to use roman numerals?). For reference the WAC has 5 top 50 wins, the Big 10 has 7, and the ACC has 11.

Oklahoma provided the latest dissapointment today against Connecticut. This conference will still scrape together 6 bids – Missouri and Oklahoma are bound to start doing something remotely close to pre-season expectations – but it’s possible only 1 or 2 teams will get a top 4 seed.
