ASU Basketball RPI Watch, 12/10/12

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Your weekly look at Arizona State's basketball program from an RPI standpoint. This week? 32nd overall.

We're starting a new feature here at House of Sparky. Each week, we'll break down Arizona State's basketball performance from an RPI standpoint and keep you up to date on how our previous opponents have played this season.

As you can see, ASU is doing pretty well with an RPI of 32 or 33 depending on where you look.

What exactly is RPI? It's what the selection committee looks at in March to help determine who meets the criteria for entry into the NCAA Tournament. Quality wins, strength of schedule, and quality of opponents are the determining factors.

Playing Creighton was a huge boost to the 2012-13 schedule and will pay benefits for a young team learning how to play together throughout the season.

Overall Record = 8-1

Pac-12 Record = 0-0

Home Record = 7-0

Away Record = 0-0

Neutral Record = 1-1

Top 50 Record = 0-1

RPI = 32

SOS = 90

Signature Wins (RPI 1-30) = None

Quality Wins (RPI 31-100) = vs. Cal State Northridge (75)

Bad Losses (RPI 101 or greater) = None
