NCAA Basketball: Southern California at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats have moved up three spots in the latest AP Poll after defeating the Arizona State Sun Devils in Tempe last Thursday.

Arizona now checks in at No. 14, which is where it was ranked two weeks ago before it lost to UCLA.

ASU is no longer ranked, meaning Arizona is the only Pac-12 team in the Top 25.

Here is the full AP Top 25 in its entirety:

  1. Virginia Cavaliers (42)
  2. Michigan State Spartans (19)
  3. Villanova Wildcats (4)
  4. Xavier Musketeers
  5. Duke Blue Devils
  6. Texas Tech Red Raiders/Gonzaga Bulldogs
  7. N/A
  8. Kansas Jayhawks
  9. Purdue Boilermakers
  10. North Carolina Tar Heels
  11. Cincinnati Bearcats
  12. Auburn Tigers
  13. Wichita State Shockers
  14. Arizona Wildcats
  15. Clemson Tigers
  16. Ohio State Buckeyes
  17. Michigan Wolverines
  18. Rhode Island Rams
  19. Tennessee Volunteers
  20. Nevada Wolf Pack
  21. West Virginia Mountaineers
  22. Saint Mary’s Gaels
  23. Houston Cougars
  24. Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders
  25. Florida State Seminoles

The Wildcats (21-6, 11-3 Pac-12) return to action Thursday when they face the Oregon State Beavers in Corvallis.

Arizona currently holds a two-game lead atop the Pac-12 with four to play. KenPom projects UA will win the conference by three games.

Last week, Arizona was officially projected as the 4-seed in the West by the NCAA Tournament selection committee.
