It's actually not a wash for several reasons. First, because Dayton plays so many teams in common, they will have a greater effect on your rpi (because they also factor into the opponents-opponents record component of every conference opponent). Second, raising the rpi of the conference improves the conference strength relative to the other top leagues, which could come into play at bubble time. If Umass has any intention of being a bubble team (maybe via strong conference play) then Umass would benefit quite a bit more from a stronger Dayton. Third, if Dayton finishes top 100 or top 50, then a win against them is counted differently than if they are 100+.

That doesn't mean you need to be completely rational in who you root for. I root against a number of Niner opponents (non-A10) in their other games, just because their fans stink or I don't like their team for other reasons.

Re: 12/8 A-10 Games

Rarlensee Nelson had 10 points, 10 assists and 0 turnovers for New Orleans. Wow.

Duquesne outrebounded them 54 to 23.

Re: 12/8 A-10 Games

Dayton taking control in the second half. This isn't a very good Miami team, especially in terms of interior defense.

That is virtually impossible for a team not to get to the line in 33 minutes of game action. It would have taken a supreme effort for Temple to beat Duke, but it's got to be impossible with that kind of foul discrepancy. Just ridiculous.

I was listening to the Penn State guys talk College Hoops today and they mentioned that Duke was leading Temple. The one announcer then chimed in "Well, it didn't help Temple that they entered the game with 15 fouls assessed to them before the game began."
