Two wins last week resulted in a one spot drop in the Ratings Percentage Index for the Hawaii volleyball team.

The Rainbow Wahine, who stayed at No. 12 in Monday's AVCA Division I Coaches Top 25, slipped to No. 11 in the RPI which is used to seed teams and help determine the 16 hosts for the NCAA tournament's first and second rounds.

Texas, which Hawaii defeated to open the season, remained No. 1 in the RPI, followed by Penn State and Washington. 

Hawaii (22-4, 11-3 Big West) finishes the regular season on the road with conference matches at UC Riverside Friday and UC Riverside Saturday.

The NCAA tournament selections show in Sunday. 

Hawaii last hosted the two preliminary rounds in 2011.

I thought hosting the first two rounds was the top 16 seeds not the top 16 RPI. which means RPI doesn't matter. all those crooks have to do is seed us #17 and we are packing our bags. am I wrong about the RPI not mattering. by the way thank you OC sports for always showing the post game ceremonies on senior nights. for those who cannot travel we really appreciate it.

AS I SAID B4, PREDICT THE FUTURE BY LOOKING AT THE PAST. NCAA HAS A DEEP FEAR AND HATRED FOR U.H. WHICH WILL RESULT IN THEIR DOI;NG ANYTHING LEGIT, OR UDDAWIZE TO PREVENT HAWAII GETTING ANYWHEREOR ENNYTEENG.

CS Fullerton & UC Riverside have RPI's of 195 & 288, respectively. Even with wins against them, Hawaii's RPI is probably likely to drop. I don't feel very confident that the Wahine will be hosting the first and second rounds given the NCAA's history of finding ways to send them on the road.

UH should file a discriminatory suit against the NCAA if they are in the top 16 of the RPI rating. Not filing on behalf of the school but the players, coaches and fans who are human beings that are affected emotionally by such tragic manipulation due to subjective and bias opinions and decisions. They will win this case cause it is based on how it affects these people in a negative way.

Hawaii will only host if they finish in the top 10. The NCAA will bypass them and force them to travel regardless of their RPI ranking. Once again, they will be forced to travel, probably to the Northwest again.
