Unfortunately Drake was just outside the AP Top 25 this week at 27th.

Sara Rhine did collect first of what will probably be many MVC Player of the Week honors.

AP rankings for 11-19-19 have Drake in "Other receiving votes", @ 32.
Drake will get two or three attempts at #30 Missouri State, have the opportunity to play number #28 Arizona State in Florida if the 'Dogs first defeat Purdue.  If they can defeat Arizona St, who lost soundly @ #31 Minnesota, who lost @ home badly to Missouri State, Drake should have a chance to play #23 Gonzaga.

The Florida Thanksgiving tournament is a great opportunity!

Others receiving votes( starting @ 26): Notre Dame 62, Arizona 53, Arizona State 46, South Dakota 26, Missouri State 24, Minnesota 13, Drake 6, Texas 5, Rutgers 2, Northwestern 1

First time since 06-07 Notre Dame is unranked.

The Gulf Coast Showcase will be key to Drake getting a quality NCAA Tournament seed. Looking down the schedule, the Oklahoma game might look good on paper but the Sooner women are coming off an 8 win season. Iowa also appears to have taken a big post-Gustafson fall off after being blown out by UNI yesterday. The Showcase will likely be Drake's last chance outside of MSU for potential high quality wins.

It's FLOHOOPS.... Maybe somebody has another way to watch.  Some don't want to pay the $4.95 for ESPN+.  Can't see people being too happy with the Flohoops plan.

The Valley finally getting some love from ESPN Bracketology....

With Missouri State winning at Minnesota (Bracketology #6), advancing to the WNIT championship and losing a close game at Oregon State, the Bears are sitting as a 5 seed.  Oregon State has moved to a #1 seed.  Drake is now in the Beaver's bracket as an 8 seed. 

Potentially another outstanding non-conference schedule:
Other teams of interest potentially  on Drake's schedule....

Iowa 12
Iowa St  11
Arizona St   8 (could face in second round in Florida)
Gonzaga  7  (could face in the third round in Florida)
South Dakota 8 (Drake lost @ SD in OT)
Oklahoma (currently next four out)

While an 8 seed would be the best seed in the last four years (10, 13, 10) the 8/9 winner has to play the 1/16 winner in round 2. Hope we can bump up to a 7 seed at minimum. It's still early.

Plenty of opportunity next week to move up, or down.  Obviously can't sleep on Western, but the neutral court games in Florida are going to be HUUUUUUGE!  By the way, the upper half of the Valley can compete.  It would be nice if Drake, Missouri State, UNi and Bradley could win out in non-conference.  Long way until March!

Bad News: Drake down to just a single vote in AP rankings.

Good News: MVC has the 3rd highest conference RPI ranking behind the Pac 12 & Big Ten.

Not sure how I feel about this: An NCAA.com article today has Drake as a 10 seed and Missouri State as a 7 seed.

A good amount of discussion during the Gulf Coast Showcase suggested the MVC could get 3 teams into the NCAA Tournament this year, but Drake's position as an at-large would certainly come into jeopardy with bad losses to Oklahoma/Iowa/Northern Illinois.

The NCAA is scheduled to start publishing daily RPI rankings for all teams individually starting again in Mid-December.

Every game, sadly, is a must win for Drake... especially in the non-conference.  Missouri State is good, really good.  Bears only loss, at #5 Oregon St., was a close game and they still only get a seven seed.  Gonzaga's only loss is in OT to #1 Standford and they still don't get a 4 seed.  The NCAA continues to reward pay for play to the POWER5 programs.

Maybe this is the year it will change.

I doubt that the NCAA will ever get over their bias.  The RPI is a tool that the NCAA uses to elevate P5 schools in the seedings but when a mid-major has a high RPI they downplay it.  It is a joke.  There simply are not 24 teams better than Missouri State or 16 teams better than Gonzaga in women's college basketball this year. I think based on results and watching them both play several times that they both are legitimate top 15 teams.  According to the schedule Missouri State plays at Gonzaga on December 20.  That should be quite a game and one would think that would be an advantage to Gonzaga to be at home but Missouri State seems to play better on the road than at home.  Meanwhile we just need to avoid bad losses and win the games we should and then hope for a seed other than 8 or 9.  A seed higher than 6 probably is not going to happen,  A 6 or 7 seed would be a good spot or at worst a 10 or 11 seed.
