The Kentucky Wildcats are standing pat in the newest AP Top 25 Poll.

Despite a host of top-10 teams losing last week, the Cats didn’t move up a single spot in latest poll, which has Villanova, Michigan State, Wichita State, Duke, Arizona State, Miami and North Carolina ahead of Kentucky.

The big riser was Arizona State, who has gone from being outside the top 25 to being a top-five team in the span of two weeks. With wins over No. 10 Xavier and No. 13 Kansas, it’s hard to argue.

Here’s the latest AP Poll:

1. Villanova Wildcats

2. Michigan State Spartans

3. Wichita State Shockers

4. Duke Blue Devils

5. Arizona State Sun Devils

6. Miami-Florida Hurricanes

7. North Carolina Tar Heels

8. Kentucky Wildcats

9. Texas A&M Aggies

10. Xavier Musketeers

11. West Virginia Mountaineers

12. Gonzaga Bulldogs
