Arizona moved up to No. 8 in the Associated Press Top 25 College Basketball poll Monday.

The Wildcats were ranked No. 10 last week. Following the loss of former No. 1 Duke, which tumbled to No. 6 after a loss, Kentucky seized the top spot, followed by Villanova, Indiana, North Carolina and Kansas. Virginia is seventh, and Xavier and Lousville rounded out the top 10.

Oregon fell from No. 4 to 13, and UCLA -- the only other ranked Pac-12 team -- checked in at No. 14.

Arizona (3-0) faces Northern Colorado (1-2) at 7 p.m. Monday on Pac-12 Network.
