Arizona jumps up in Top 25 poll after win over ASU

Posted: Updated:

The University of Arizona men's basketball team jumped three spots in the Associated Press Top 25 poll.

The Wildcats' 84-78 win over then-No.3 Arizona State helped propel UA to No 14 in the rankings. Arizona State slipped one spot to No. 4.

Michigan State is the new No. 1.

The Spartans received 43 of 65 first-place votes from a media panel in the poll released on Monday to earn the top spot for the first time since the 2015-16 season. Duke received 21 first-place votes while moving up two spots to No. 2 and No. 3 Villanova received the other.

Michigan State (14-1) had been No. 2 for three weeks and slid into the top spot after previous No. 1 Villanova lost to Butler on Saturday. No. 4 Arizona State and No. 16 TCU also lost on Saturday, leaving college basketball with no unbeaten teams headed into the new year.

No. 5 Xavier, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Virginia, Wichita State and Kansas rounded out the top 10. Texas A&M fell six spots to No. 11 after losing to Florida.
