2018-19 Week 5 College Basketball Bracket Impact Games

Not too early for bad losses.

The college basketball season continues, taking us to the 2018-19 Week 5 college basketball bracket impact games.

It’s December now, which means the college basketball season is no longer in its infancy. It is at worst a toddler and maybe even a preschooler. Non-conference play has begun in some leagues, while others will play their holiday season cupcake games. The latter provides high-risk, low-reward opportunities for potential bubble teams to bust their own resumes, but someone has to play these teams.

The Jimmy V Classic is among the notable college hoops events taking place this week.

No surprise, for RPIs we turn to RealTimeRPI. As noted earlier, we will rely on these in increasing fashion. There was too little season to justify it in November, but now that the sample size is growing, so too is our reliance on RPI. And, let’s face it, the selection committee relies on RPI, too.
