After compiling a 20-3 overall record so far this season, the Villanova Wildcats are now ranked No. 1 in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches Poll for the first time in their storied history. This is the second time the Wildcats have been ranked No. 1 in the USA Today poll, the last time being in April of 1985.
The Wildcats have reached the No. 2 ranking on six previous occasions, the most recent coming after their 2015 Big East Tournament championship triumph.
The Wildcats will look to stay atop both polls this week when they travel to Chicago to face DePaul tomorrow.
