Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 4, same

Just maybe the Wildcats have their point guard for the next few years in Angel Rodriguez.

Last Week's Record: 1-2
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 5, down one spot

Last Week's Results: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 7, up one spot

Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 8, same

Last Week's Record: 0-2
