The Kentucky basketball teams are on the rise again.

Both the men's and women's basketball teams moved up in the major polls after going unscathed in conference play last week.

Following Villanova's loss to Georgetown, the men moved up to No. 3 in the Associated Press Top 25 and No. 2 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll. UK trails Kansas and Syracuse, respectively, in the AP poll and Kansas in the Coaches poll.

The men notched two first-place votes in the AP and one in the Coaches.

Meanwhile, the women continued their climb in the AP Top 25, jumping to No. 17 in the latest rankings. UK's 8-2 record in league play marks the program's best start in Southeastern Conference play in school history. The women's Coaches poll will be released Tuesday.

Also, ESPN.com has its weekly Bracketology. This week the Cats are in Milwaukee as a No. 1 seed, of course.
