Arizona dropped two spots to No. 8 in the Associated Press Top 25 media poll today after losing 84-73 to UCLA last Thursday. 

 The Wildcats also fell to No. 8 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches Top 25 poll.

Oregon, which is 18-2 overall and 7-0 in Pac-12 Conference play, moved up to No. 10 in the AP media poll and No. 12 in the coaches poll.

UCLA, which went on to lose at ASU on Saturday, was not ranked in the AP poll but received the 29th most votes. ASU was right behind the Bruins with the 30th most votes.


Arizona has an RPI of 4 and is No. 10 in the Sagarin power ratings.


The Wildcats are listed as a No. 1 seed in Jerry Palm's CBS Sports bracket projection, being assigned to a first weekend in Salt Lake City and possible second weekend in Los Angeles.


In an updated profile of Solomon Hill, Draft Express says the UA senior has made considerable headway in erasing his "tweener" label and could provide an NBA team immediate help at small forward next season.


Bill Walton's appearance at Arizona has been set for 10 a.m. on Feb. 6 at the Bio Sciences West Room 301.


Carrick Felix was named the Pac-12 player of the week for the third time this season after ASU swept USC and UCLA.
