Arizona became the first team in 31 years to drop from No. 2 all the way out of the Associated Press Top 25 poll the next week after a disastrous trip to the Bahamas, breaking a string of 100 straight appearances.
The Wildcats had been ranked in every AP Top 25 poll, counting preseason and weekly polls, since the beginning of the 2012-13 season. The AP poll does not rank during or after the NCAA Tournament, so it has 19 or 20 polls per season counting the preseason.
Arizona also fell out of the USA Today coaches Top 25 poll, after the Wildcats were ranked No. 4 in that one last week. They had been ranked in 105 straight coaches polls, which do release postseason rankings, also dating back to the 2012-13 preseason.
