The Bulldogs lose 71-62 at home to Pomeroy No. 309 Sacred Heart in front of 851. Yale shoots 4-15 from three and hot-shooting Austin Morgan goes 0-4. Game remarkably even but Sacred Heart gets 9 more shots from the field and makes four of them for the win. Yale has 18 TOs.

Damn. They just dropped 50+ RPI places from this game alone.

In Yale's defense, this was an annual in-state rival. I mean, Monmouth gave Princeton all it could handle (not by luck either), and the Tigers are a more seasoned squad than the Bulldogs. Also, Sacred Heart has a godawful RPI, but I'm guessing their Pomeroy is better -- close losses at UMass and against Wagner.

As I said in the first post, their Pomeroy is 309. In the Poms, UMASS is 113 and Wagner is 256. The Heart already has four losses to teams ranked below 250 and their ebst win before today was at 235 Stony Brook.

Granted, in the Poms, Yale was a more accurate 177, but they were still projected as 15 point winners at home against Sacred Heart.

Oops, misread. RPI on the brain lately. Also, Sacred Heart's RPI was exactly 309 coming into the game -- so that probably confused me, too.
