Big jump in RPI for Washington

The computers love road wins, which partly explains why Washington made a significant leap to No. 73 in the RPI following a 68-63 victory at Washington State. The Huskies were 95 last week.

That’s a big jump and a move in the right direction for a team with NCAA tournament aspirations.

Here’s where the other Pac-12 teams rank: Arizona (4), Colorado (6), UCLA (39), Oregon (48), Arizona State (54), California (70), Stanford (80),Utah (108), USC (154), Oregon State (173) and Washington State (193).

Interesting to note, Colorado didn’t take much of a hit following defeats at Arizona and Arizona State. The Buffaloes fell one spot. Meanwhile, Oregon and ASU made precipitous double-digit climbs in the index.

In the human rankings, the writers dinged Arizona, which remains one of four unbeaten teams in the country. Apparently style points matters more than points on the court because the Wildcats fell to No. 4 in the AP poll. They remain at No. 3 in the coaches rankings.
