A weekend slip-up has dropped the Arizona Wildcats top No. 18 in the Associated Press college basketball Top 25.

Arizona dropped from No. 12 to 18 -- the ranking Arizona held the previous week, before moving up to 12 -- following a 74-73 loss to California Saturday. Arizona beat Stanford 71-57. Thursday.

Oklahoma held the top spot in the poll, despite losing last week. North Carolina, Iowa, Kansas and Texas A&M rounded out the top five.

Oregon, at No. 23, is the only other Pac-12 team in the poll. Oregon visits Arizona at 7 p.m. Thursday on ESPN2.
