For the third year in a row, the University of Arizona women's basketball team has earned a preseason national ranking. The Wildcats are ranked 25th in the Associated Press Preseason Top 25, which was released on Tuesday. The Wildcats are also ranked 24th in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches' Preseason Top 25.

The Wildcats were ranked among the top 25 in five different "unofficial" preseason polls this fall. The UA's highest ranking in these polls was 13th by Women's Basketball magazine and lowest was 22nd by both Street & Smith's and the Basketball News Report.

Arizona entered last season with a #21 ranking in both the A.P. and Coaches polls, after starting the 1997-98 season with a ranking of #15 in both polls. The `98 Wildcats were ranked in the A.P. poll all year and achieved a ranking as high as seventh.
