After beating Arizona, the UCLA Bruins have moved up to No. 3, and the Oregon Ducks remain at No. 6 after a two-point win over Stanford.
With the Gonzaga Bulldogs losing their first game of the year to BYU late Saturday night, the Kansas Jayhawks are the new top team in the country. Gonzaga has slipped to fourth, but still received two first place votes.
On KenPom on Monday morning, Arizona was rated as the 22nd-best team in the country, showing that the metrics don’t line up with the perception or the record this team has with just one game left in the regular season. UCLA is 13th and Oregon is 17th using Pomeroy’s metrics.
The Wildcats return to the court on Saturday afternoon in Tempe. They’ll face the Arizona State Sun Devils at 2 PM MT on CBS.
