Plenty of movement in the Pac-12 Power Rankings as the non-conference season winds down.

No one had a better week than Stanford’s Johnny Dawkins who led the Cardinal to a 53-51 victory at No. 10 Connecticut, which just might have been the biggest win during his six-year coaching tenure.

After consecutive trips to the National Invitation Tournament, the pressure is on Dawkins to make the NCAA tournament for the first time. The Cardinal got off to a bumpy start and lost 112-103 at home to BYU on Nov. 11. Stanford also stumbled badly against Pittsburgh in an 88-67 defeat on Nov. 26.

Since then, the Cardinal have won three in a row. A win on Saturday against Michigan at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York would cap a very impressive road trip for Stanford and Dawkins.

Huskies still haunted by early mishaps

Where would Washington be if it hadn’t stumbled in home defeats to Albany and Nevada? When you take a look at the Huskies’ schedule, those losses are glaring and could come back to haunt them in March. Washington was 98 in the RPI weeks ago. Following Wednesday’s 64-54 win over Colorado, the Huskies have improved to 51…
