UW hoops program rated 124th by ESPN since 1985

Interesting new series debuting today on ESPN.com, rating college basketball programs since 1984-85, when the tournament expanded to its current 64 teams.
And there appears to be little subjectivity about it. Instead, ESPN.com developed a points system, and is unveiling the top 50 teams, in groups of 10, based on the totals.
ESPN.com also has this list of teams 51-300 in the ratings, with the Huskies at 124.
That leaves UW sixth among Pac-10 teams — here’s the list of Pac-10 teams unveiled so far. UW is ahead of USC (132), ASU (181), WSU (237) and Oregon State (241).
Obviously, UW has been a mix of good and bad during that time — three Sweet 16s (the cutoff date just misses the Sweet 16 appearance in 1984) but also the eight straight losing seasons from 1988-1995, then four more from 2000-2003.
