It might be the 10th time this season the Wildcats have been ranked No. 1, but maybe the first time the players feel they deserve it.
"We feel like we're No. 1 right now," senior Rick Anderson said.
When the poll came out yesterday afternoon, Arizona (20-2) remained at the top for the fourth time in the last five weeks with 59 first-place votes.
"It was a real good weekend," senior Luke Walton said. "We are starting to play a lot more than just one half. Our defense is starting to make strides."
