WAC Basketball Notebook (1/18-1/24)

Kirk Snyder - Nevada (AP)

Last week was a wild week in the WAC basketball rankings. The week started with Fresno State atop the rankings only to drop from the top spot for the first time under Head Coach Ray Lopes two-year tenure. The Rice Owls stay at the top was short-lived after being soundly thumped by the Nevada Wolfpack leaving things clear for the Hawai'i Warriors. Expect more this week as #1 Hawai'i faces #2 Rice and #2 Fresno faces #4 Nevada.
