UW Hoops Ranked No. 17 In Coaches and AP Top 25 Polls

New, 34 comments

For the first time since 2011 the hoops team is ranked in the polls, earning the No. 17 spot in the coaches poll after Sunday's 49-36 victory over now No. 16 San Diego State

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

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.
