Bulldogs Back In Associated Press Rankings At No. 25
Complete Basketball Rankings
SPOKANE, Wash. - Gonzaga University is back in the Associated Press Top 25 poll men's basketball after a month-long absence.
The Bulldogs, riding a six-game winning streak to go to 11-2, checked in at No. 25 this week following an impressive 72-65 victory at Xavier University last Saturday. It was the first time Xavier, which had been ranked as high as eighth this season, had been back a full strength since a brawl against the University of Cincinnati in mid-December led to several suspensions to players from both teams.
San Diego State University is 24th with 196 points, while the Bulldogs garnered 121 points.
Gonzaga was ranked 23rd before the Bulldogs lost to the University of Illinois to fall out of the rankings.
The Zags are the first team receiving votes this week in the ESPN/USA Today top 25 coaches poll with 57 points, three behind No. 25 SDSU.
Syracuse is No. 1 in both polls for a fourth straight week, receiving 60 of 65 first-place votes from the media panel in the AP poll and 30 of 31 first-place nods from the coaches, the University of Kentucky getting the remaining first-place votes in both polls.
The Bulldogs, 1-0 in the West Coast Conference following a post-Christmas victory over the University of Portland, is home for two WCC outings this week. Pepperdine University visits Thursday followed by Santa Clara University on Saturday.
