Huskies Climb Five Spots To No. 20 In Latest Associated Press Poll

Feb. 3, 2003

SEATTLE, Wash. - Following two decisive Pac-10 victories at home this past weekend, Washington women's basketball climbed five spots to No. 20 in the latest Associated Press Top-25 Poll released Monday.

The Huskies (17-3 overall, 9-2 Pac-10) made the biggest jump of any team in this week's poll, moving up five spots from its season debut ranking of 25th last week. UW's No. 20 billing is its highest since a No. 19 ranking Nov. 18, 2001. The Huskies swept the LA schools this past week, with dominating wins over USC (94-76) and UCLA (111-77) that extended their home winning streak to 11-straight games.

Washington heads into this week a half game behind first-place Stanford in the Pac-10 standings. The No. 6 Cardinal (17-2, 9-1) is the only other Pac-10 team ranked in this week's AP Top-25. Arizona fell out of this week's poll following a No. 24 spot last week.

The Huskies head to the desert this week to face Arizona, Thursday, Feb. 6, at 6 p.m. PT and Arizona State, Saturday, Feb. 8, at 12 p.m. PT. Saturday's game will be televised nationally on Fox Sports Net with Jim Watson and Tammy Blackburn calling the action.
