TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The University of Arizona jumped back into the AP Top 25 while Arizona State made a big leap after a tumultuous week in which half of the top 10 lost.
Arizona State grabbed No. 5 in the poll, thanks in large part to a huge upset of then No. 2 Kansas in Lawrence on Sunday. The Sun Devils (9-0) also had five first-place votes.
Villanova (10-0) took over the top spot in the poll with 41 of 65 first-place votes to hop over Michigan State, which earned 19 first-place votes to climb from third to second. They were the favorites to take over at the top following unanimous No. 1 Duke's weekend loss at Boston College.
Wichita State climbed three spots to No. 3, followed by Duke and Arizona State. The Sun Devils (9-0) jumped 11 spots and earned the other five first-place votes after winning at then-No. 2 Kansas to extend their best start since the 1974-75 season.
The Jayhawks fell to No. 13 after two losses.
