Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Following an impressive undefeated streak and an early season championship in the Bahamas, the Wildcats have entered the Top 25 and are seated at the No. 14 spot in the Associated Press Poll.

Villanova (7-0) is coming off a successful run at the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament where James Bell was named tournament MVP and JayVaughn Pinkston was named to the All-Tournament team. On the way to their undefeated record, 'Nova has rattled off wins against then-No. 2 Kansas and then-No. 23 Iowa.

Our friends from VUHoops.com pointed out earlier that Villanova grabbed the No. 19 rank in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll.
