Huskies out of my top 25

Okay, so I’m ready for all your slings and arrows, but I left the Huskies out of the top 25 this week when I sent in my ballot for the AP writer’s poll.
And the Pac-10 team I replaced them with is Washington State, which now has a better overall record, a better conference record, a higher RPI and a better record against teams ranked in the top 100 in the RPI, not to mention simply playing better this weekend against the same two foes as the Huskies.
All the RPI information can be found here courtesy of Ken Pomeroy’s blog.
So here’s my ballot for this week:
1, UCLA
2, North Carolina
3, Duke
4, Wisconsin
5, Florida
6, Arizona
7, Ohio State
8, Alabama
9, Kansas
10, Oklahoma State
11, Pittsburgh
12, Butler
13, Texas A&M
14, Connecticut
15, Notre Dame
16, Oregon
17, Tennessee
18, Memphis
19, LSU
20, Marquette
21, Purdue
22, Nevada
23, Air Force
24, Clemson
25, Washington State
And speaking of Pomeory’s, here’s his updated Washington team page in which he has the Huskies starting out 1-7 in Pac-10 play and going 8-10 in conference play and 18-12 overall.
I think that would spell an NIT berth if that comes to pass.
