Bruins Fall to No.17 in Both Polls

By Bruin Basketball Report

After splitting games this week at home, the UCLA Bruins (11-2, 1-1) ) dropped from No.11 to No. 17 in both the ESPN/USA Today and AP polls . The Bruins had defeated Stanford convincingly but then dropped a close game to the California Bears on Saturday.

After a two week hiatus, Arizona climbed back into the rankings at No.21 in the AP and No.23 in the ESPN/USA Today polls . Arizona defeated Washington in double OT in Seattle. With the loss to the Wildcats, the Huskies dipped in the rankings from No.7 to No.10 in both polls.

The California Bears, after a surprising sweep over UCLA and USC last week, garnered two votes from AP voters and one vote from ESPN/USA Today.

It would not be surprising to find four Pac-10 teams in the overall rankings soon.

The Bruins currently have a No.16 RPI rating and are No.23 in strength of schedule (SOS).
