The Arizona State men’s basketball team inched up from 25th to 23rd in the latest Associated Press college basketball rankings after a win over California.

ASU beat the Golden Bears in Berkeley, 70-62, behind point guard Remy Martin’s 22 points and five assists.

Freshman Josh Christopher scored 14 points in 28 minutes of play as the Sun Devils moved to 3-1 on the season.

Arizona State remains the only Pac-12 team in the top-25.

Gonzaga and Baylor remained atop the AP men’s basketball poll released Monday after their hotly anticipated weekend game in Indianapolis was called off about 90 minutes before tipoff because of positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing within the Bulldogs’ program.

Gonzaga received 54 of 61 first-place votes from a national media panel while the Bears had the other seven. Iowa remained third after Luka Garza’s monster week powered the Hawkeyes to a pair of easy victories, Michigan State climbed four spots to No. 4 and Kansas jumped two spots to round out the top five.

Illinois allowed the Big Ten Conference to keep three teams in the top six after then-No. 4 Wisconsin took a tumble with a last-second loss to Marquette. The Illini were followed by Houston, Creighton, Villanova and Duke.

The top 10 could get a shakeup this week. Iowa plays No. 16 North Carolina and Illinois faces the Blue Devils in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge on Tuesday night. The Jayhawks play the Bluejays in the Big East-Big 12 Battle.
