The Washington Huskies's weekend sweep of the Arizona schools moved them to No. 16 in the AP media poll and No. 13 in the coaches ESPN/USA Today poll -- both season highs.
Also for the first time this season, UW is the highest-ranked Pac-10 team in both polls, ahead of UCLA and Arizona State respectively.
ESPN's bracketology also moves UW up to a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament. Joe Lunardi's projection would have the Huskies opening in Portland against Weber State, with the winner advancing to meet the winner of the Gonzaga (!-- see post below--!)-Utah State game for the right to go on to the Sweet Sixteen in the Western (Glendale, Ariz.) Regional.
