It was another wild week of action around the SEC, with several teams significantly improving their shot at making the NCAA Tournament.
There was plenty of movement in the RPI, but Auburn remains atop the SEC ladder after getting back on track with a win over Georgia.
Tennessee, who started the week off with a win at Kentucky, didn’t fall too far after a head-scratching 28-point loss at Alabama. The Vols are still in the top 15, while the victory helped the Tide move back into the top 35 in the RPI.
Texas A&M was another big winner from the week, as the Aggies had perhaps their best two-game stretch of the year in knocking off Auburn and Kentucky.
This was also a significant week for Missouri, with Cuonzo Martin’s squad extending their winning streak to four to make into the RPI top 25.
Here’s the full RPI breakdown:
