It was supposed to come several weeks earlier but the Zags finally had their first true test of the season this past week as they took on a very strong St. John's team. The athletic Red Storm were a tough matchup for the Zags and Steve Lavin's team simply wouldn't go away in the finals of the NIT Season Tip-Off. Some late game heroics from Gary Bell and stellar play from Domantas Sabonis pushed the Bulldogs to the win and moved them to 6-0 on the season. For their efforts, the Associated Press has decided to reward them with the No. 9 ranking in the nation.
The top five remains the same as Kentucky, Wisconsin, and Arizona lead the pack as the top three. Here's a look at the top 10:
