After climbing to No. 4 last week, Arizona Basketball (7-1, 1-1) had a bit of humble pie this week, dropping to No. 10 in the latest AP Poll.
The 2022-23 Arizona Basketball season is steadily rolling along, and one week after their dominant showing in Maui, the Wildcats came crashing back down to reality.
Having a bit of an up-and-down week as they began Pac-12 play, the Wildcats were humbled when they took to the hardwood in Salt Lake City last Thursday.
Taking on a capable Utah team, the Utes crushed the Wildcats, winning convincingly by an 81-66 final.
Luckily, the Wildcats did salvage their week, splitting the Pac-12 action as they earned a comfortable, but not necessarily pretty win against winless Cal on Sunday afternoon.
And after an up-and-down week, Arizona made news on Monday afternoon as in the latest AP Poll, the Wildcats fell to No. 10.
Still at a very respectable spot; however, Arizona Basketball did get a bit of humble pie in the latest AP Poll rankings.
Also joining Arizona from the Pac-12 Conference was UCLA at No. 10, meanwhile, Arizona State is on the outside looking in, earning 20 AP votes, and Utah is just behind them with 16 AP votes.
So, with the Wildcats now ranking No. 10 in the country, they will have to remain focused this week as they take on No. 14 Indiana on Saturday as part of the Las Vegas Clash.
As we learned this week, the Wildcats cannot overlook anyone and they will need to stay hungry and humble. Should the Wildcats take care of business these next couple of weeks, Arizona can continue to rise in the AP Top 25 rankings!
