TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

After holding the number one ranking for eight weeks the Arizona Wildcats fell to number two in the Associated Press Top 25. Syracuse leap frogged to grab the top spot.

The Cats lost their first game in a two-point loss to Cal on Sunday 60-58. They also lost starting forward Brandon Ashley for the rest of the season after he suffered a foot injury early in the game.

Arizona hosts the Oregon schools starting with the Ducks Thursday at 7:00 p.m.
