A 5-0 start has put the Arizona Wildcats on the national radar.

The UA received five votes in the latest AP poll that was released Monday, the first votes they have received this season.

That means Arizona is now the No. 37 team in the country, two spots behind UCLA, three spots behind ASU and six spots behind Oregon.

No Pac-12 teams are ranked in the AP Top 25.

Arizona is ranked 45th in KenPom, with the No. 60 offense and No. 29 defense in the country. The Wildcats return to the court Wednesday against Cal Baptist before their Pac-12 opener at Stanford on Saturday.

On the women’s side, the Wildcats still rank No. 6 in the AP Top 25, the highest ranking in program history. Stanford (1) is the only Pac-12 team ranked higher, while Oregon (7), UCLA (11) and Oregon State (22) are also in the Top 25.

So far, the Wildcats are 4-0 with wins over NAU, UCLA, USC and ASU.

They hit the road for the first time this season when they visit Colorado on Friday and Utah on Sunday, a trip the Wildcats split last season as Aari McDonald nursed a foot injury.
