Looking at Some Other Teams “On the Bubble”

by @ 10:00 pm. Filed under All Cats Everything

After losing to Elston Turner Texas A&M on Saturday, the talk of Kentucky being a possible “Bubble Team” has started to circulate. Seeing as how the Cats are just now hitting their second week of conference play, this talk does not and should not amount to much. With that being said, however, let’s look at how the team stacks up against other teams that find themselves “on the bubble”. This list comes from Joe Lunardi’s Bracketology that was last updated on January 8th and has Kentucky as the 10 seed in the West region, so things will have change for each team by the time the brackets are updated next. For the purpose of this post, we’ll look at the First Four Out.

- Kentucky:

 

Record: 10-5

Strength of Schedule: 44

RPI: 65

Biggest Win/s: Maryland (72-69), @Vandy (60-58)

Last Two Games: Win @ Vandy, Loss to Texas A&M

- Iowa State:

Record:11-4

Strength of Schedule: 75

RPI: 46

Biggest Win/s:BYU (83-62)

Last Two Games:Loss @ Kansas, Win vs. Texas

- California:

Record:10-6

Strength of Schedule:45

RPI:68

Biggest Win/s:UC Santa Barbara (68-59), @USC (72-64)

Last Two Games: Loss vs. Washington, Win vs. Washington State

- Stanford:

Record:10-7

Strength of Schedule: 39

RPI:74

Biggest Win/s: Northern Iowa (66-50)

Last Two Games: Win vs. Washington State, Loss vs. Washington

- Iowa:

Record:12-5

Strength of Schedule: 106

RPI: 70

Biggest Win/s: Iowa State (80-71)

Last Two Games:Loss vs. Michigan State, Win @ Northwestern

Obviously, the season is still young, but what do you think? How does Kentucky stack up against  these four teams that, as of last Tuesday, Joe Lunardi has ruled out of the NCAA Tournament? How will the Vandy win and A&M loss effect the Cats’ standing in the next Bracketology?
