The Arizona Wildcats are starting look more like themselves, though it was not necessarily seen in the national polls.

Sean Miller’s team, which beat Fresno State 85-72 and Missouri 88-52 last week, remained at No. 13 in the Associated Press poll and is still 12th in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

This is the 65th consecutive week the Wildcats, who are 9-1 this season, have been ranked in the AP top 25.

The Wildcats, who are led in scoring by Ryan Anderson (15.6 points per game) and are getting increasingly strong contributions from freshman Allonzo Trier (13.2 points per game), face Northern Arizona Wednesday and then UNLV Saturday, with both games in Tucson.

The only other Pac-12 team in the top 25 of either poll is UCLA, which is 21st in the AP Poll.
