New, comments
Nate Shron

On the heels of a week where Villanova (15-1, 4-0) won road games at Seton Hall and St. John's, Jay Wright's Wildcats can be found with the #6 ranking in the newest AP Poll released on Monday.

Arizona (17-0) and Syracuse (16-0) remain the top two teams in the country.

Last week, 'Nova was ranked #8. This is the first time Villanova has been in the AP Top 6 (or better) since the 2010-11 season.

The Big East is also represented in the AP Top 25 by Creighton at #20.
