College basketball rankings: UCLA makes No. 1 case in AP Top 25; Providence, Maryland sink

Alabama and Kansas have embarked on a path that opens the door for UCLA to make a strong case for two top spots in the AP Top 25 College Basketball Poll. The Bruins were scheduled to take on the Arizona dogfight for the Pac-12 crown. But Mick Cronin, Jaime Jakes and Tiger Campbell must not have gotten the note. UCLA beat Arizona four games for the Pac-12 crown to end the game 18-2 in the league.

“Look, we don’t worry about shots,” Cronin said. “We are worried about good shots. Winners know what to focus on. We focus on effort, defense, game plan fulfillment, rebounding and open shots.All I want is fair treatment for my team. That’s all you can say. But the games are still there, right? We are all going to participate in conference tournaments.”

Providence, Maryland and several other teams in the NCAA Tournament lost in the poll.
