An annual tradition.  Every year, I shall present, without comment, the highest RPIs left out of the NCAA and NIT tournaments.  And the lowest RPIs that made such tournaments.

Temple 34
Tulsa 45
Old Dominion 46

Richmond 57
Stanford 59
Illinois St 62

Lowest RPIs in NCAAs:
Indiana 61
Ole Miss 60
LSU 58
Purdue 56
Oklahoma St 49

If selecting just based on pure RPI, Indiana/Ole Miss/LSU/Purdue would be out and Colorado St/Temple/Tulsa/ODU would be in.
