Arizona basketball received no votes in the latest AP top 25 college basketball poll.

The Wildcats went 1-2 in Maui Jim Maui Invitational last week.

Gonzaga is the new No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25, leapfrogging Kansas after winning the Maui Invitational.

The Bulldogs were third in last week's poll and moved ahead of No. 2 Kansas following Wednesday's thrilling win over former No. 1 Duke in the Maui title game. Gonzaga received 32 first-place votes from a 65-person media panel in the poll released Monday, edging Kansas by one.

No. 3 Duke received one first-place vote despite the loss to the Zags and No. 4 Virginia the other one after winning the Battle 4 Atlantis title in the Bahamas.

Nevada moved up to No. 5 after winning the Las Vegas Invitational, with Tennessee, Michigan, Auburn, Michigan State and Kentucky rounding out the top 10.

Defending national champion Villanova moved back into the poll at No. 23 after winning the AdvoCare Invitational title.
