The 2002-03 Arizona Wildcats spent the entire season — 19 weeks — in the AP Top 5, so that accomplishment is difficult to top.

This year’s edition is has been ranked in the Top 5 for 16 consecutive weeks, including an eight-week consecutive run at No. 1. Sean Miller’s Pac-12 title team was ranked No. 6 in the preseason and following the first week, otherwise the Wildcats could have matched what Lute Olson’s 2002-03 team accomplished in 2002-03.

Arizona may be No. 3 in the AP Top 25 poll for the second consecutive week, but the Wildcat have been at No. 1 in the RPI since Kansas lost at Oklahoma State on Saturday night.

The Wildcats received five No. 1 votes, an increase of one from last week. No other Pac-12 team is ranked despite the fact that six conference teams are in the Top 50 according to the RPI.

Kentucky remains in the Top 25 at No. 25 despite a 21-8 record in one of the weakest conferences (SEC).
