Two wins by Hawaii last week did not help the Rainbow Wahine in the NCAA Ratings Percentage Index released today.

Hawaii (18-4), up a spot to No. 12 in today's coaches poll, dropped a spot to No. 16 in the computer-generated power rankings used by the NCAA for postseason seedings and hosting duties for 16 schools for the first and second rounds. The RPI  measures wins, losses, strength of schedule and opponents' strength of schedule. 

The Rainbow Wahine were No. 3 in the first RPI of the season three weeks ago but have slipped since then, in part to losing three of four conference losses last month. Two weeks ago, Hawaii was No. 13 and then No. 15 last week.

The top four teams in the RPI remained the same as last week, led by Texas. Penn State was No. 2, Florida No. 3 and Washingon No. 4.

The RPI somewhat mirrored the AVCA Division I Coaches Top 25 poll also announced today.The top eight teams remained unchanged, led by Texas (17-2), which received 41 of the 60 first-place votes.

 Penn State (20-2) was second with 14 votes and Washington (19-1) third with five votes.

Rounding out the top eight were USC (20-3), Florida (22-2), Stanford (15-5), Missouri (27-0) and San Diego (19-3). Minnesota (21-4) and Colorado State (21-0) traded places, with the Golden Gophers moving up a spot to No. 9 and the Rams dropping a spot to No. 10. Nebraska (17-4) remained at No. 11.

Hawaii moved into UNC's spot at No. 12 after the Tar Heels (20-3) lost twice last week. UNC fell to No. 19.
