Despite winning its only game last week Saint Louis fell from number-20 to number-21 in the "USA Today" Top 25 poll. The Billikens improved to 18-and-2 overall and 5-and-0 in the Atlantic 10 with their victory over Duquesne last Wednesday. They return to action tomorrow night hosting Richmond.

Unbeaten Arizona is atop the "USA Today" top-25 college basketball poll for the eighth straight week. The 20-and-0 Wildcats received 31-of-32 first-place votes. Syracuse remains number-two for the seventh straight week at 19-and-0. The Orange got the other first-place vote. Wichita State is third, followed by Florida and San Diego State. Michigan State, Louisville, Kansas, Villanova and Oklahoma State round out the top-10. Baylor fell out of this week's poll.
