The Arizona Wildcats have fallen in the AP Poll for the second straight week.

Arizona dropped one spot, from 15th to 16th, after losing at home to the Gonzaga Bulldogs on Saturday. Gonzaga moved up four spots, from No. 6 to No. 2

You can find the full AP Poll here. Oregon is No. 8 while Washington is back in the polls at No. 22. Colorado dropped out after a week in which it lost at home to Northern Iowa but beat Colorado State at home.

Arizona (10-2) ranks 15th in the first NET ratings of the season, which were unveiled Monday. The NET, the official metric of the selection committee, takes into account game results, strength of schedule, game location, scoring margin, net offensive and defensive efficiency, and the quality of wins and losses.

Stanford (9-1) checks in at No. 9.

Arizona also ranks 15th in KenPom’s ratings, dropping three spots after the loss to Gonzaga. The Wildcats have the No. 13 offense and No. 43 defense in the country, per KenPom.

Arizona wraps up non-conference play Saturday against St. John’s at the Chase Center in San Francisco. The Red Storm are 9-2 with a win over West Virginia and a loss to Arizona State.
