Cats rise in AP basketball poll

The Arizona Wildcats continued their surge up the AP Top 25 college basketball poll Monday.

Arizona is now No. 5, up two spots from No. 7 last week.

Gonzaga claimed the top spot for the second time ever, followed by Baylor, Kansas and Villanova.

No. 11 UCLA and No. 13 Oregon, the other two Pac-12 conference teams in the rankings, dropped out of the top 10 following losses.

Arizona (20-2, 9-0 Pac-12) visits Oregon State for a 7 p.m. Thursday game on ESPN2.
