— Arkansas is No. 18 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll for the third consecutive week.

Voters didn't penalize the Razorbacks for their big loss at No. 1 Kentucky on Saturday. The undefeated Wildcats were a unanimous choice as the nation's top team this week.

The Razorbacks are also ranked 18th in the official NCAA Ratings Performance Index, which was updated Monday. Seeds for the NCAA Tournament are based largely on RPI rankings.

Arkansas (23-6, 12-4 SEC) plays again Thursday at South Carolina. The Razorbacks host LSU on Saturday in the regular season finale.
