What’s that smell? Success

It was just a week ago that Bobby Jones talked about how when you start losing, everything disappears — awards, rankings, publicity, etc.
Well, two wins over the weekend helped bring a lot of that back.
First off, Brandon Roy was named Player of the Week for his performances in the wins over USC and UCLA. It’s the first time he’s won the award this season. He also won it as a sophomore late in the year after UW swept Arizona and Arizona State on the road.
The official Pac-10 release.
The Huskies are also moving back up in the polls, to No. 21 from No. 23 in the coaches poll, and to No. 20 from No. 21 in the AP poll.
And those who project NCAA Tournament fields are back in love with the Huskies. Gregg Doyel at CBSsportsline, who was in town for the USC game and wrote glowing story on Brandon Roy in the process, has UW as a No. 4 seed this week.
Interestingly, he slates Montana as a No. 13, setting up a possible first-round rematch of last year’s first-round game — which, of course, will never actually happen.
And according to Ken Pom’s RPI projection on kenpom.com, the Huskies are up to No. 40 in the RPI after standing at No. 54 a week ago.
