The Arizona Wildcats, coming off a 58-53 win at ASU yesterday to open the Pac-12 season, remain at No. 18 for the fourth straight week in the AP Top 25 poll released today.
The Wildcats are in the AP poll for the sixth week, their longest stretch since they were ranked in 15 different weeks in the 2002-03 season.
Arizona, off to its best start in program history at 12-0, is one of nine teams that are unbeaten in the nation. The Wildcats play at USC (8-4, 0-1) on Friday and No. 10 UCLA (12-0, 1-0) on Sunday.
The Bruins and Wildcats are among the five ranked Pac-12 teams. The others are No. 2 Oregon (10-1), No. 3 Oregon State (12-0) and No. 5 Stanford (11-1). Colorado (12-0, 1-0) is another unbeaten Pac-12 team but is unranked.
Arizona has the longest active winning streak in the nation at 18 games, dating to last season’s six-game run to the WNIT championship.
