AP Top 25 Poll: Arizona Climbs Seven Spots

The top two teams remain the same this week as Villanova and Kansas both came out of last week with a 2-0 mark, but the rest of the top ten saw a little shakeup. Arizona’s win at UCLA dropped the Bruins five spots to No. 8 while the Wildcats moved up to the No. 7 spot right in front of UCLA. The Florida State Seminoles also made a nice jump after wins over Notre Dame and Louisville last week. Creighton fell out of the top 10 after their loss to Marquette while West Virginia dropped 11 spots by losing both of their games last week to Oklahoma and Kansas State. The Kansas Jayhawks have a monster week ahead with road trips to West Virginia and Kentucky. Below is the complete top 25 poll with first place votes in parentheses.
