A home loss to Oregon Thursday dropped the Arizona Wildcats to No. 23 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 college basketball poll.

Oregon, which moved up to Nov. 16, is the only other Pac-12 team ranked. Arizona was No. 18 last week.

It has been a rough season for the Wildcats, but things could be worse. Duke, which has lost four of its last five games, dropped out of the poll for the first time in nine seasons.

Oklahoma remained No.1, followed by North Carolina, Villanova, Maryland and Iowa.

The Wildcats visit last-place Washington State at 8 p.m. Wednesday. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
