The Wildcats remained the No. 1 team in the Coaches Poll for the third straight week.

UCLA is still No. 2 with Kansas, Duke and Baylor rounding out the top five.

It’s worth noting that we made the change in our top 25 to reflect what most seem to believe: That Duke is the best team in college basketball.
