Coach Sean Miller's Arizona Wildcats are the No. 1 team in the nation for the fifth straight week, according to both the AP Top 25 and USA Today Coaches polls.

The Wildcats are coming off a home sweep of the Washington schools, having beaten the Cougars 60-25 on Thursday and the Huskies 71-62 on Saturday.

At 15-0 (2-0), Arizona received all but five first-place votes in the AP Poll and earned 30 of 32 votes in the USA Today Coaches poll. Other first-place vote-getters included Syracuse and Ohio State.

The Wildcats hit the road this week for a pair of tilts with the Southern California schools, starting with UCLA Thursday night.
