College basketball preseason poll: AP rankings list Arizona No. 6

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats are sixth in the preseason college basketball poll.

The Arizona Wildcats came in sixth in the preseason Associated Press poll released on Thursday. Here's a look at the top-10.

Sean Miller's crew came in fifth in the initial USA Today Coaches Poll. The rankings come in the same order through the first four teams, but Kansas and heralded freshman Andrew Wiggins jumped the Wildcats in the AP Poll released on Halloween.

The AP Poll also favors No. 7 Michigan and Oklahoma State, which is tied with Syracuse for the No. 8 spot.

The Wildcats certainly have a favorable ranking considering all their question marks, but Kentucky brought in perhaps its best freshman class -- and that's saying something -- while Duke and Louisville also reloaded. Again, Arizona could do itself a huge favor in terms of rankings by getting to Madison Square Garden in the preseason NIT and hoping for another classic matchup against the Duke Blue Devils.
