The UCLA Bruins men’s basketball team has moved up three spots in both Top 25 College Basketball polls this week after defeating St. Francis on Friday night. The Bruins moved up because multiple teams ahead of them dropped in this week’s poll or dropped out of it altogether.

Elsewhere in the Pac-12, the Oregon Ducks, the only other ranked Pac-12 team, fell in this week’s polls and are now ranked 20th in the Coaches Poll and 21st in the AP Poll.

Meanwhile, Duke, which had been #1 in the AP Poll claimed the top spot in the Coaches Poll as well by jumping Kansas, which is now ranked 2nd in both polls. This week’s biggest mover is Michigan which jumped nine spots in the AP Poll and ten spots in the Coaches Poll to 9th and 8th, respectively.
