UCLA's big win against Kentucky over the weekend has paid off as the Bruins have moved up to #2 in both the USA Today Coaches Top 25 Poll and the Associated Press Top 25 Poll. Both polls were released this morning.
Villanova is new #1 team in both polls. Kentucky dropped to #6 in the AP Poll and #7 in the Coaches Poll.
Arizona is the second Pac-12 school in each poll, coming in at #20 in both. Oregon is the only other Pac-12 school in either poll at #24 in both.
Southern Cal and UC Berkeley are two other Pac-12 schools who also received votes in both polls. Colorado received votes in the Coaches Poll, but not in the AP Poll.
Ohio State, which UCLA will play in Las Vegas a week from Saturday, also received votes in both polls.
