Movin’ on up

With Duke losing, poll voters have finally seen the light and made the Huskies the No. 1 team in the country.
What’s that? That’s UConn at the top? Oh well, I knew it was one of those Huskies teams that Doug Wrenn used to play for that was ranked No. 1.
The closer-to-home Huskies also made some slight headway in the polls, as well, after the sweep of the Oregon schools, moving up to No. 9 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll while remaining No. 10 in the AP poll.
Here are the links to those ratings via ESPN’s page.
Also, the Huskies have unofficially moved up to No. 35 in this week’s RPI.
And as always, there’s Joe Lunardi’s ESPN Bracketology, which has a Washington tint all the way around. Lunardi has UW No. 4 in the Washington D.C. region with a possible second-round matchup against George Washington. I’d like UW’s chances of getting to the Sweet 16 in that scenario.
Once there? Lunardi has UW facing Duke, which would at least put the Huskies on the forefront of the college basketball world for a night. Here’s the link to Lunardi’s latest piece.
The Huskies will travel to the Bay Area this week for games at Cal Thursday and Stanford Sunday.
Here’s a story on Cal’s loss at Arizona Saturday that serves as a good primer for where the Bears are now.
We’ll have more here Tuesday on UW’s preparations for the Bay Area trip.
