As college basketball steers its way through the most intense stages of the regular-season, there are a number of teams that still need to prove their ceiling before March comes along.

Arizona State jumped back up to fifth with a victory over Oregon State while Oregon moved down a spot to sixth with a loss to Arizona. Meanwhile, Colorado jumped the Washington schools into seventh as a result of its victory over Cal.
