The Bruins are 1-0 after defeating Indiana St., 86-59, on Nov. 9 at Pauley Pavilion.
The Bruins only trail the Arizona Wildcats among Pac-12 teams in the rankings. The two teams are the only teams representing the Pac-12 in the latest poll.
The top of the poll remained the same as the No. 1 Indiana Hoosiers, No. 2 Louisville Cardinals, No. 3 Kentucky Wildcats, No. 4 Ohio St. Buckeyes and No. 5 Michigan Wolverines, all retained their rankings. The only change in the top 10 is the Syracuse Orange and Duke Blue Devils swapping spots. Syracuse is the new No. 8 after beating San Diego St. and Duke is No. 9 despite beating Georgia St. in their first game of the season.
