The new NCAA basketball ratings are out, and much like they did in the Associated Press poll, the UCLA Bruins have moved onto the college basketball radar. At 16-7, and second place at 7-3 in the Pac-10 conference, UCLA is now in the "others receiving votes" section of the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll. At 33rd, the Bruins are ranked for the first time since November 22, when they were ranked 35th.
Here is the full ESPN/USA Today coaches poll top 25:
- Ohio State (31 first place votes)
- San Diego State
- Notre Dame
- Utah State
- North Carolina
- Texas A&M
- St. Mary's
The Arizona Wildcats are the only Pac-10 team in the top 25, ranked 16th. The Washington Huskies are the only other team in the conference to receive any votes. The Huskies were ranked 19th last week, but after three straight losses they fell to 28th. The Bruins host both Oregon schools in Los Angeles this week.
