Heck of day thus far, isn’t it? With a couple of overtime scares and some great competition thus far, here’s where our “bubble” area is, via the RPI ratings as calculated by FieldHockeyCorner.com. Once again, there’s a tie for that 11th spot, but it’s now between Michigan and Stanford, with Louisville having fallen 2/1000ths of a point adrift.

Now, there was one interesting thing I noticed when it came to the RPI ratings coming into this entire exercise: the placement of the University of Maryland. The Terps were seventh going into the start of play on Thursday, but, despite winning their first-round game against Michigan State, they were ninth this morning. That made today’s conference semifinal against Northwestern all the more dramatic. Not only did Maryland come from behind in regulation to win at the stroke of death in overtime, it did a world of good in RPI ratings, as they’re back in eighth.

Six games are yet to go final; we’ll have more when the calculations are made.

Team RPI
10 Princeton 0.606
11 Michigan 0.602
11 Stanford 0.602
13 Louisville 0.600
14 Liberty 0.594
15 Boston University 0.580
