The Washington men's basketball team was the biggest mover in the coaches poll announced on Monday morning, moving up to No. 17 after Sunday's 49-36 victory over San Diego State. It is the first time the Huskies have been ranked in either poll since 2011. The AP poll has yet to be released.
The Huskies were the biggest mover by jumping 15 spots. San Diego State fell from No. 14 to No. 16 after the loss. Utah and Arizona are the only other Pac-12 teams to crack the rankings.

Upshaw nickname contest
With his play so far this season I think Robert Upshaw is deserving of a nickname for his dominating defensive skills. The best I have heard so far was "The Blockness Monster" created by The Daily's Joe Veyera. Give me your idea in the comments section below.
Somebody might be missing their drapes.
Leave your nickname suggestions, reactions to the Huskies being ranked and any additional thoughts on the hoops team in the comments section below, and don't forget to follow Erik on Twitter.
