UST 10-0 at home 2-8 on the road. Probably lose the home court advantage when they move into their bigger arena.

Some are calling this a signature win for the Tomboys, however it wasn't enough to boost them past the Gophers in the kenpom rankings. Gophers are currently 182 while UST, still can't break past 200, sits at 206.

In your opinion, what's an acceptable spread between the two? Would it be OK if the Gophers were 35 and UST was 40?
It's not really about the magnitude of the spread between the two. It's that UST is a low-major Summit League team ranked in the lower half of college basketball teams. A fan of a P6 team should feel zero pride in being ranked ahead of such a pipsqueak, and embarrassment of being ranked anywhere near them.

Honestly, I don't care how good St. Thomas is doing in the Kenpom. If we are at 35, I'm pretty happy regardless of where St. Thomas is located. If we are near 200, that's god awful regardless of where St. Thomas is ranked.

Now if a local team filled with half MIAC players is ever ranked higher than the Gophers, that should be a giant spotlight on just how awful our program really is.

Having a program that is similar to St. Thomas in their second year of D1 play should be unacceptable to everyone.
