College basketball rankings: UCLA 4th, Oregon 15th, Arizona 17th, USC 25th

We maintain four top 25 Pac-12 teams.

NCAA Basketball: Arizona at California Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

4. UCLA Bruins. UCLA dropped a few spots, which could push them back into that one-two seed territory for awhile. They still remain strong favorites to take their journey to the West Region, but they have to stay upright in the conference.

15. Oregon Ducks. Oregon can make a strong climb of their own in tournament positioning if they win the Pac-12, and they started off on the right foot by winning two of the toughest games on their schedule against USC and UCLA.

17. Arizona Wildcats. Arizona is lingering as always, and after a strong showing against Cal and Stanford, don’t expect them to go anywhere.

25. USC Trojans. USC is no longer perfect, but they retained their top 25 ranking. That’s all they can hope for and keep themselves in strong contention for a tournament bid.

Here are the latest college basketball rankings from this week’s AP poll.
