There's a good chance you'll hear this over and over during both the CBE Classic and Maui Invitational: these crazy pre-season rankings don't mean that much.
With the latest release of the AP poll, that probably holds true far moreso for the #13 Washington Huskies than #22 Gonzaga Bulldogs at this point.
Washington moves up to 13 after beating the likes of McNeese State and Eastern Washington University handily with their first real elite test bound to come in Maui, presumably against Kentucky if they can handle Virgina tonight (9 p.m. PST/ESPN2).
On the other hand, Gonzaga lost to now #18 San Diego State during ESPN's Tip-off Marathon last week and will likely get an even stronger test tonight against #4 Kansas State in the first round of the CBE Classic. Thankfully, they're expected to have forward Elias Harris back from injury.
