NCAA Basketball: Pepperdine at Southern California Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The USC Trojan’s men’s basketball team once again climbed another spot to number 22 in the latest AP Poll rankings. Last week the Trojans were 23rd. The 13-0 Trojans have continued their red hot start sweeping their non-conference schedule and winning the Las Vegas Classic. While their were a few close calls and the competition has been unimpressive in spots this run still remains one of the Trojans best in several decades

Several other teams from the Pac-12 Conference appear in this week’s poll. The UCLA Bruins held at 2nd in the nation behind only the Villanova Wildcats. The Arizona Wildcats held firm at number 18. The 10-2 Oregon Ducks dropped a spot from 20th to 21st.

USC will begin Pac-12 play on Wednesday December 28th against the Oregon State Beavers followed by a matchup with the ranked Ducks on the 30th. You can see the full poll below:
