This site added a new column at the end which shows what the old RPI ranking would be and the difference. UMass is at 122 now and would be 98 on the old scale.

Old RPI probably being NIT qualifying for UM, now UM probably needs 2 A10 wins in Tourney

Wouldn't help. After the stellar performance against hapless La Salle:

RPI #137
SOS #124

Here's the sad part. Even using the OLD RPI UMass is #112

If GW wins tonight, our numbers go up. Down if the Hawks win.
