TUCSON, Ariz. - The University of Arizona men's basketball team was ranked 16th in the Associated Press Top-25 poll released today, receiving a total of 616 votes.

It marks Arizona's first appearance in the preseason national rankings since 2007-08 when both the AP and the coaches' poll ranked UA 17th to open the season.

The Wildcats were also ranked No. 16 in the preseason coaches' poll.

Beginning with the preseason polls in 1987-88, Arizona was ranked in every preseason poll in that period except the 1995-96 AP poll and both polls to open the 2001-02 campaign.

En route to 30 wins and a Pac-10 regular season championship a year ago, Arizona was ranked in both national polls for the last eight polling periods of 2010-11, reaching as high as No. 9 in the final coaches' poll.

The 16th-ranked Wildcats open the 2010-11 regular season vs. Valparaiso on Monday, Nov. 7, at 7 p.m. MST.
