Move Washington up as I was impressed with the ASU performance, although the Arizona game was a disappointment. The fact that so many top-25 teams fell last week allowed them to move up.

Maybe more amazing is that last week I had ASU ranked #12, now they are completely off my list. Seeing them play more showed they are incredible weak in depth and are completely reliant on Harden to play well. Obviously that was somewhat known before, but the fact that UW and WSU were both able to take him out of the game completely and still only Jeff Pendegraph was able to step up does not speak well for the Sun Devils.

I added LSU to the list, Trent Johnson is having the Tigers playing very well right now.

Oklahoma takes my top spot. Always thought highly of them, and obviously more highly seeing as how the majority of the AP voters slotted them #2 behind UConn. But Blake Griffin is the best player in the country unquestionably, and the team is 9-0 against top-50 opponents this year. The Sooners have shown incredible talent so far this year. Next year however when they lose the Griffin brothers and Willie Warren, look for a steep fall off. As an Oklahoma hater, I can’t wait.
