Bruins Climb to No.12 in ESPN/USA Today and AP

By Bruin Basketball Report

After an impresive road win at Ann Arbor, the Bruins have climbed up to No.12 in the both the ESPN/USA Today and AP rankings. UCLA (8-1) was ranked No.14 in both polls last week.

Michigan which was on the cusp of a top 25 ranking last week received less votes this week as a result of their loss to the Bruins on Saturday.

One interesting development this week involves the Arizona Wildcats who were ranked No.24 in the AP last week but were left of this week despite the fact they thumped Utah by 30 points in Salt Lake City. Perhaps voter protest or bad karma? (i.e. Hassan Adams) The Wildcats had already been left off the ESPN/USA Today top ranking last week.

The Washington Huskies also moved up in the polls to No.9 and No.7 in the AP and ESPN/USA Today rankings respectively.

The UCLA Bruins next game is against Wagner on Wednesday. Game preview coming tomorrow.
