If you’re like me and you like a good #NerdStat, I recommend the website RealTimeRPI.com.
Even if you’re not a fan of high major college basketball, it’s a good resource for RPI resources, predictions and forecasts for mid-major hoops — like the Summit League. If nothing more than for good fodder.
Here’s what the site projects for the University of South Dakota teams (keeping in mind that the game-to-game forecasts will change):
• USD men: 2-12 in the Summit League, with home wins over IUPUI and Western Illinois.
Also of note, the site predicts the Coyotes to lose at home to rival South Dakota State 75-73 and 83-65 in Brookings.
Denver, Fort Wayne and North Dakota State are projected to all 10-4 in league play (Omaha was not listed correctly, for some reason).
• USD women: 10-4 in the Summit League, with road losses at IUPUI, Fort Wayne, South Dakota State and Western Illinois.
South Dakota State and IUPUI are projected to 12-2 in the league (again, Omaha was not listed).
