Washington's two easy wins over the Oregon schools seems likely to produce one, and perhaps two, honors on Monday.
First, UW -- now 19-6 overall and atop the Pac-10 with a 10-3 league mark -- certainly should return to the Associated Press rankings and move up from No. 24 in the coaches poll.
There also seems a good chance that this is finally the week that a Husky -- Justin Dentmon -- earns Pac-10 player of the week honors.
"I would hope they would give him high consideration," coach Lorenzo Romar said. "He's been pretty good."
Over the two games, Dentmon scored 49 points, handed out nine assists, grabbed six rebounds and came up with three steals.
Top competition might come from Arizona's Nic Wise, who had 53 points, four assists, six rebounds and four steals in helping the Wildcats sweep the LA schools.
However, players from seven different schools have won the honor already this season, and a UA player has won the honor three times. So it just seems about time that someone from the league's No. 1 team is recognized.
