The Huskies lost their third straight game Sunday night – a 68-60 overtime defeat to Stanford.

Following the setback, Washington (11-3, 0-2 Pac-12) fell out of the national rankings.

Here’s a look at the Associated Press poll, which includes No. 7 Arizona and No. 9 Utah.

And here’s a look at the USA Today/coaches rankings that has Arizona at No. 6 and Utah 11th.

The Huskies’ RPI took a little hit as well. UW fell from 34 last week to 41.

Here’s a look at where the other Pac-12 teams rank in the RPI: Arizona and Utah (13), Stanford (29), Colorado (76), Oregon (97), California (98), UCLA (107), USC (111), Arizona State and Oregon State (140) and Washington State (148).

MONDAY MORNING LINKS:

— Here’s the UW-Stanford game stories in the Associated Press, Everett Herald, San Francisco Chronicle and San Jose Mercury News.

— With Klay Thompson watching in the stands, Washington State did an impressive thing and snapped its 15-game Pac-12 road losing streak with an impressive 69-66 win at California. WSU received 18 points from Josh Hawkinson while Jordan Railey added 17 and DaVonte Lacy had 14. The Cougars improved to (7-7, 1-1).

— No. 7 Arizona rolled over Arizona State 73-49 in the Pac-12 opener for both schools. The Wildcats (13-1, 1-0) tweaked the lineup and started sophomore forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson over freshman Stanley Johnson and sophomore guard Elliott Pitts over junior Gabe York.  ASU fell to 8-6, 0-1.

— Perhaps the most impressive performance during the first week of the Pac-12 came from No. 9 Utah, which trounced UCLA 71-39.

— Colorado routed USC 86-65 at Coors Events Center to improve to 9-5, 0-2. The Trojans are 8-6, 0-2.
