Atlantic 10 ranks high among conferences

An update on the Atlantic 10 and the RPI:
The Atlantic 10 is ranked seventh out of 31 conferences through games of Dec. 19 by The A-10 is the only league to have four teams ranked in the top 20 overall as Xavier comes in at No. 10, followed by Massachusetts (15th), Rhode Island (16th) and Dayton (19th).

In addition, the Atlantic 10 boasts a record of 86-53 (.619) in non-conference action this season which, if maintained, would be the fourth-highest winning percentage since the formation of the league in 1976-77 and highest since the 1993-94 campaign (69-35 - .663).

A-10 teams were 104-85 (.550) in non-conference matchups last season.

Thanks, Jim. You must know that I love this stuff!

I've got a 'thermometer' on the A10 boards with the winning percentages of the A10 in the past ten or so seasons with 1997-98 on top (0.624, 5 bids).

What was the actual winning % for that season? I probably goofed.
