I don’t know about anyone else, but yesterday’s release of the ARC, RPI and SOS ratings got me all sorts of jacked up for the tournament to be here! I know, I know, some of you are telling me to slow my role! I won’t say that there is still a lot of season left, but we still have some time for those teams who are needing a late season run, to still make that run. Who may be those teams you may ask? Well I am sure glad you asked!! Be on the lookout for our 1st Bracketology Report that will be released later this morning, as we once again partnered with Red Banner Roundball to bring you the absolute BEST tournament analysis around! As we always say, we aren’t perfect, BUT Red Banner did go 48 of 48 on teams making the field in the final Bracketology Report last season! This years tournament goes to a 64 team field so we are happy to bring back one of the most popular segments we do each season! But for now, for this article, we will keep the focus on the recap on the games, news and notes from around the NAIA yesterday.
