The Arizona Wildcats are back in the Top 10.

After sweeping the Mountain schools, Arizona has risen from No. 11 to No. 9 in the latest AP Poll which was released Monday morning.

Here is the new poll in its entirety.

  1. Villanova Wildcats (47)
  2. Virginia Cavaliers (17)
  3. Purdue Boilermakers (1)
  4. Duke Blue Devils
  5. Michigan State Spartans
  6. Xavier Musketeers
  7. Kansas Jayhawks
  8. Cincinnati Bearcats
  9. Arizona Wildcats
  10. Texas Tech Red Raiders
  11. Auburn Tigers
  12. Oklahoma Sooners
  13. Saint Mary’s Gaels
  14. Gonzaga Bulldogs
  15. West Virginia Mountaineers
  16. Wichita State Shockers
  17. Ohio State Buckeyes
  18. Tennessee Volunteers
  19. North Carolina Tar Heels
  20. Clemson Tigers
  21. Kentucky Wildcats
  22. Rhode Island Rams
  23. Florida Gators
  24. Michigan Wolverines

The Wildcats (18-4, 8-1 Pac-12) have won six straight and 15 of their last 16. Only Purdue has fared better in that stretch.

ASU is the only other Pac-12 team in the Top 25 (barely), though USC (17-6, 8-2 Pac-12) is only a half game behind Arizona in the conference standings.

The Wildcats return to the hardwood Wednesday when they travel to Pullman to face the Washington State Cougars.

The Wildcats then take on the Washington Huskies on Saturday in Seattle.
