Power Rankings: Men's Hoops Week 6

Another week, another set of power rankings. USC made the biggest shift in the rankings but they only played one game. Obviously the voters were not impressed with how the Trojans lost. Click the jump to find out more in this week's power rankings.

Rank (lw) Votes Team Conf Overall Comments
1 (1) 27 UCLA 8-2 19-4 Think those losses to ASU and UW got the Bruins attention? They have been blowing out people ever since.
2 (2) 24 Washington 8-3 17-6 The Huskies escape Stanford and get beat up bad against Cal but still maintain their ranking? Too many votes hanging out with Michael Phelps.
3 (4) 20 Arizona State
7-4 18-5 Oregon schools + James Harden = number 3 ranking in the Pac-10 Power Rankings.
4 (5) 19 Cal 7-4 18-6 Just when you thought the Bears were done, they come roaring back to get a great win over the Huskies and are still in the hunt for the Pac-10 title.
5 (6) 14 Arizona
6-5 16-8 The wildcats escaped Gill with a win over the nation's First Coach and coasted by Oregon. Even though the cats have won 5 straight, they welcome a big test in UCLA this week.
6 (3) 13 USC 6-4 15-7 Lost to UCLA last week and has to travel to Arizona this week. Can the trojans rebound?
7 (7) 7 Washington State 4-7 12-11 Dropping two in the Bay Area didn't drop Washington State as far as this author thought it would. The Cougars welcome the Oregon schools to Pullman, a welcome rebound.
8 (9) 7 Stanford 4-7 15-7 Beating up Cal State Bakersfield doesn't count in this weeks ranking...nor should it count in any rankings of this nature.
9 (8) 4 Oregon State 4-7 10-12 Heartbreaking loss to Arizona, then the Beavs only managed 38 points against the Sun Devils? The last time the Beavs had only 38 points? It was against the Sun Devils back on January 8th.
10 (10) 0 Oregon 0-11 6-17 2 more losses for the Ducks of Oregon. The magic number for that 0-18 season is down to 7. The "Fire Ernie" crowd has been lighting the torches and getting the pitchforks ready.
