The Arizona Wildcats’ 27-point loss to Stanford only dropped them one spot in the AP Top 25, as they now check in at No. 7 after spending multiple weeks at No. 6, the highest ranking in program history.
Arizona bounced back from the 81-54 loss to the Cardinal by annihilating Cal 69-33, the fewest points the Wildcats have ever allowed in a Pac-12 game.
Stanford (1), UCLA (9) and Oregon (11) are also ranked in the AP Top 25, while Arizona State, Washington State and Oregon State are receiving votes.
The Wildcats (8-1, 6-1 Pac-12) return to the court Friday when they begin the Washington road trip at UW, where Adia Barnes coached and Aari McDonald played before making the move to Tucson.
The Huskies are 4-5 overall and 1-5 in the Pac-12. Washington State is 6-1 and 4-1, respectively.
“That is a tough road trip, so it’s another test for us,” Barnes said Sunday. “I’m just excited the way we’re responding and we need to get better before the Washington trip, and I think that’s going to be a fun trip that’s going to test us again.”
