Washington makes it debut in the Associated Press and USA Today/coaches polls at No. 17. It’s the first time the Huskies have appeared in the top 25 rankings since February 2011.

Here’s a look at the Associated Press poll, which includes three Pac-12 teams: Arizona (3) and Utah (13).

The USA Today/coaches poll is nearly identical, Arizona is third and Utah 14.

Washington made an even bigger jump in the RPI rankings leaping from 54 to 34 following its 7-0 start, highlighted by Sunday’s 49-36 win over then-No. 13 San Diego State.

Here’s a look at where the other Pac-12 teams rank in the RPI: Arizona (6), Utah (25), Stanford (62), Colorado (68), USC (109), California (116), UCLA (122), Arizona State (150), Oregon (157), Oregon State (181) and Washington State (225).

IN OTHER NEWS:

— Interesting to note Eastern Washington, which plays Washington on Sunday, is 55th in the RPI rankings.

— Oklahoma is ranked 15th in the coaches ranking, 16th in the AP poll and 39th in the RPI. The Sooners and Huskies clash Dec. 20 in the MGM Showcase in Las Vegas.

— Not sure how relevant the RPI is this early in the season. Green Bay Phoenix (6-2) is at the top of the list followed by Kentucky, Duke and Kansas.

— California junior Tyrone Wallace won the Pac-12 player of the week award after leading the Golden Bears to wins over Montana and Nevada. He averaged 25.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists in both games.
