UCLA Basketball: Bruins Still the #2 Team in the AP Poll

The UCLA Basketball team remain at #2 in the AP Top 25 Poll for the third straight week after wins over UC Santa Barbara and Ohio State.

Nothing has changed for the UCLA Basketball team as they remain at the top of the AP Poll as the #2 team in the latest edition of the Top 25.

Last week the Bruins had wins over UC Santa Barbara and then Ohio State in the nationally televised game which really solidified the Bruins as one of the top teams in the nation.

Through 12 games, the Bruins remain perfect and could possibly go 13-0 with a win over Western Michigan this week. The following week, UCLA begins Pac-12 play in Eugene as they take on the #20 Oregon Ducks.

With Villanova staying perfect themselves, there wasn’t much room for advancement for UCLA (or any other team), but at the same time the Bruins have definitely solidified their spot as one of the top teams in the nation the season.

The top five are as follows: #1 Villanova, #2 UCLA, #3 Kansas, #4 Baylor and #5 Duke.

As for the Pac-12, the following teams are in the AP Top 25 poll: #18 Arizona, #20 Oregon and #23 USC.
