Arizona became only the third team this season to hold the No. 1 spot for two consecutive weeks in the Associated Press college basketball poll.

The Wildcats, who defeated UCLA, 89-86, Saturday, were an overwhelming choice as the top team after a week in which four of the top six teams--Georgetown, Indiana, North Carolina and Syracuse--were beaten.

The Wildcats (24-3) received 61 first-place votes of the 66 cast by the nationwide panel of sportswriters and broadcasters and 1,315 points for their third week atop the rankings and second in a row.
