Friday Update – Jan 20

Rankings based on all games through Jan 19.

Not a whole lot of change in the seed lines this week.  Arizona swaps spots with Oregon after the Wildcats’ win at USC.  Both teams are in the midst of very long winning streaks, but Arizona’s is a bit more impressive given its quality road wins in Pac-12 play.  Oregon has played five of its first seven league games at home, and the other two were at the lowly Washington schools.
