As mentioned last week, Hawaii had been projected to have an RPI of 3 before being upset by UC Irvine on Friday; the Anteaters opened with an RPI of 202 today out of 335 teams.
Baylor (13-0), the lone unbeaten in Division I, topped the RPI list as well as today’s American Volleyball Coaches Association Top 25. The Bears received 60 of the 64 first-place votes to remain at No. 1 for the second consecutive week.
Washington (11-3), which Hawaii defeated in the season-opening tournament, dropped three spots to No. 11 and Missouri (10-3), which Hawaii beat at last month’s Baylor Invitational, stayed at No. 22.
Hawaii resumes conference play on the road with matches at league-leaders Cal Poly (12-5, 5-0) on Friday and UCSB on Saturday. The Mustangs opened with a 50 RPI and the Gauchos 35.
