Let G denote a split simply connected almost simple p-adic group. The classical example is the special linear group SL(n). We study the K-theory of the unramified unitary principal series of G and prove that the rank of K_0 is the connection index f(G). We relate this result to a recent refinement of the Baum-Connes conjecture, and show explicitly how generators of K_0 contribute to the K-theory of the Iwahori C*-algebra.
