The Eagles' historic 26-7 season left them ranked 52nd in the country in the season-ending RPI listings, the second-highest RPI ranking of a team in school history. The 2014-15 team that was the first women's team to make the NCAAs finished 49th in the country in RPI after a 24-9 season and a near-upset of Iowa in the first round of the tournament. The 21-12 2007-08 men's team--the first men's team to make the dance--finished with an RPI of 71; the team that repeated as Patriot League champs the following year with a record of 24-8 actually finished with a slightly lower RPI, 73.
