Arizona tumbles to No. 9 after loss to Oregon

Arizona tumbled from fifth to ninth in this week's Associated Press college basketball poll following its blowout loss at Oregon.

The Wildcats were one of three top-five teams to lose but suffered the biggest drop. Kansas, which opened the week with a win over second-ranked Baylor, remained at No. 3 despite the end of its 51-game home-court winning streak in a Saturday loss to Iowa State. Baylor, which lost to Kansas and Kansas State, fell from second to sixth.

Oregon took Arizona's place at No. 5, making the week's biggest jump from No. 13.
