The rest of the RPI top 25:

While the RPI is not a perfect system, I do believe if you can get in the top 25, you’re almost always guaranteed an at-large berth.
(20-4, 26, 39) Getting stronger and stronger, already up to 13-0 in the Horizon. Totally possible it could be 17-0 going into the Siena game. If that happens and Butler beats the Saints, it could be looking at a 5-seed or better.
