Despite picking up its first win at Arizona State in almost two decades, the Arizona women’s basketball team remained at No. 18 in the latest AP Poll released Monday.

It’s the sixth straight week Arizona is in the Top 25. Before this season, it had not been ranked since the 2004-05 campaign.

The Wildcats are 12-0, off to the best start in program history. They rank No. 2 in the country in defensive rating and No. 31 in offensive rating, as well as No. 1 in scoring defense and No. 14 in field goal percentage. They have won 18 games in a row dating back to last season, the longest active streak in the country.

Oregon (2), Oregon State (3), Stanford (5), and UCLA (10) are also ranked. ASU and Colorado are receiving votes.

Arizona heads to Los Angeles this week to face USC and UCLA on Friday and Sunday, respectively.
