Oregon checks in at No. 10 in the AP Poll, their first top ten ranking since 2007.
The new college basketball polls are out, and, again, the Oregon Ducks are a big mover. After a home sweep of the Washington schools, and following a slew of upsets nationwide, Oregon has moved up six spots to No. 10 in the AP Poll and sup seven spots to No. 12 in the Coaches poll. It is Oregon's first top ten ranking in basketball since 2007.
The two polls are split on the No. 1 team in the country--the AP selecting Michigan, while the Coaches went with Kansas. Indiana, Florida, and Duke round out the top five in both polls.
Interestingly, Arizona remains ahead of Oregon in both polls despite the two conference losses and Oregon's head-to-head victory. They check in at No. 8 in both polls. Oregon and Arizona are the only Pac-12 teams ranked this week, with UCLA and Arizona State both falling into the 'receiving votes' category.
If Oregon is long for the top ten, they are going to have to figure out how to hold onto the ball without starting point guard Dominic Artis, who is out 3-6 weeks. The Ducks travel to the Bay Area to face Stanford and Cal this weekend.
