The latest NCAA basketball rankings are out, and the UCLA Bruins are making their way closer to the top 25. A sweep of the Oregon schools this weekend gave the Bruins five straight wins, and eight wins in their last nine contests. As a result, UCLA has moved up in the college basketball rankings, tied for 28th in the AP poll, up from 37th last week.
Last week, UCLA received votes in the Associated Press college basketball poll for the first time in 11 weeks. This is their highest ranking of the season, surpassing their previous high of 35th in the AP poll on November 22. Here is the full AP top 25:
- Kansas (22 first place votes)
- Ohio State (14)
- Texas (23)
- Pittsburgh (6)
- San Diego State
- Notre Dame
- North Carolina
- Texas A&M
- Utah State
The Arizona Wildcats are atop the Pac-10, one game ahead of UCLA, and come in ranked 12th, up from 15th last week, the only conference team in the top 25. The only other Pac-10 team to receive votes in the poll was the Washington Huskies, who swept the Bay Area schools at home last weekend, and are ranked 32nd.
