Healthy Respect

Howland was incredulous that the 9-3 Huskies, the preseason pick to win the Pac-10 by the media and the only team to be in the top-25 this season, were not still ranked.
Washington, coming off a 73-67 overtime win at USC on Wednesday, has three losses to now-ranked teams.
“I find it really really surprising that they’re still not nationally ranked,” Howland said. “Their three losses are at Texas A&M, which is in the top-20, Michigan State and Kentucky at neutral sites. They are very, very good. They should be ranked, and I really don’t understand.”
