College basketball rankings: Oregon, Utah, Arizona, Cal all in top 25 for Pac-12

Who made your top 25?

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Four Pac-12 teams are in the top 25 once again, and it's pretty much set in stone three will finish the season there.

Oregon has climbed up the polls to 8th in the AP and 9th in the Coaches Poll. Oregon swept USC and UCLA and is knocking on the door of a 2 seed. Win the Pac-12 tournament convincingly and a 1 seed could be in play.

Utah finished 12th in both polls. The Utes have not lost in over a month and have ridden likely Pac-12 player of the year Jakob Poeltl to a potential high seeding. Can Utah get themselves back to the Sweet 16 for a second straight year?

Arizona recovered and swept Cal and Stanford last week to move up to 15th in the AP and 14th in the Coaches Poll. Can the Wildcats go deep in Vegas?

Cal is currently the only maybe top 25 team for the Pac-12, but at 24th in both polls they're far from secure at this point. One or two wins this week and they will probably finish in the top 25.

Below are the rankings.
