For what it is worth the RPI ranking system is being replaced by the NET (NCAA Evaluation Tool) ranking system. I think both throw out all non-D1 games.

The NET, explained: NCAA adopts new college basketball ranking to replace RPI

Only division I schools count on a team’s RPI. Discussion as old as time here. All schools schedule at least one non d-1. (Except possibly the blue bloods.) it is a cheap buy game, and allows a coach to get many players extra minutes.

I will bet you that UE doesn’t even pay out a tenth of what they get from Kentucky with this game against IU-K.
