One should note, however, that 7 points doesn't actually mean 7 votes. Last week, a writer placed NU at #22 which gave NU four points. The odds are those 4 points are part of this week's 7 points. Still, it's nice to NU hoops getting respect.
Also, tonight's game is big. Going into the Stanford game 7-1 might draw some national attention. Let's hope that despite a long layoff, a small crowd, very few students, and no band that the 'Cats can get up for tonight's contest against the 'Roos.
