The million dollar question is if UCI beats UCsD but loses to Hawaii who will have the better RPI between UCI & Hawaii?

Can you calculate this Dan?

No, I'm not tracking the RPI in men's volleyball. The RPI information comes from the NCAA. I will say that playing UCSD will hurt UCI's RPI, so it seems to favor Hawai'i in your scenario.

Besides, the selection committee will be looking at more than the RPI. Head-to-head matches, for instance. The winner of the hypothetical Irvine-Hawai'i match will have won the season series 2-1.
