    1. Actually 1/4 people on bracket matrix don’t have them in, but yes i realize most of those are older brackets, Providence still has 2 terrible beyond compare losses, Marquette doesn’t. Providence has lost to DePaul and BC, while Marquette hasn’t, their worst loss is St Johns, a loss Providence shares. Plus, out of the two only Marquette has beaten Villanova


      1. RPI: Providence 51, Marquette 72
        Season Series: Providence 2, Marquette 0

        Of 31 brackets updated today, you are one of two that doesn’t have them. So you aren’t alone, I suppose 🙂


      2. I mean you do make a good point, but the committee is in the process of moving away from the RPI, and instead, Kenpom has Marquette 32 and Providence 56. Should providence be in? I’m not sure. Another quality win or a good run in the BE tourney would put them in.


  1. RPI is the only one they’ve said they’ve named that they actually use, and are continuing to use this year. They may make a change next year I’ve heard

    Pomeroy has teams like Clemson 44th and Georgetown 59th, it’s hard to take seriously as a ranking system for a tournament. It’s good data, but rankings are often odd.

    I think if you look at top 50 wins and compare Providence with the other bubble teams, you’ll find what you are looking for.


    1. Providence does have better wins, they also have some of the worst losses a bubble team could have, DePaul and Boston College, it’ll come down to whether the committee puts them in because of quality wins, or keeps them out due to terrible losses. Odds are they win the ones they should from here on out and other teams play themselves off the bubble, but as off now, they’re looking like to me, the #1 seed in the NIT
