The Arizona Wildcats’ return to the AP Top 25 was a short one.

The Wildcats, previously ranked 22nd, were dropped from the AP poll after Saturday’s 66-65 road loss to ASU in which they blew a 22-point lead.

This marks the second time in three weeks Arizona (13-6, 3-3) has been unranked. It received 55 votes, the second-most among teams outside the Top 25.

Oregon moved up a spot to No. 11 after a home sweep of the Los Angeles schools, and Colorado moved up three spots to No. 20 after a home sweep of the Washington schools.

Arizona ranks No. 10 in NET and No. 12 in KenPom, with the No. 11 offense and No. 31 defense in the country.

The Wildcats are winless on the road and have two more games away from McKale Center this weekend when they travel to Washington and Washington State.
