Another couple of wins in the week allowed Gonzaga to maintain their holding in the polls, and depending on who you ask, the Bulldogs are either the second best or third best team in the nation.
Gonzaga remained at No. 2 in the coaches poll and are still getting a vote of borderline lunacy from a coach who thinks the team is better than the Kentucky Wildcats. The AP voters still slot Virginia and Kentucky ahead of the Bulldogs.
Arizona, a potential threat to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, sits at No. 7. SMU sits at No. 21, to round out the other teams that Gonzaga fans might care about.
Perhaps, most importantly, one of the rankings the Gonzaga Bulldogs dropped in last week are the Ken Pomeroy rankings. Although the committee doesn't use Pomeroy's rankings in their discussion, they are often a well thought idea of where a team actually sits in how good it is. Gonzaga dropped to No. 4 in Pomeroy's rankings at the beginning of the month, and, as of this morning, now sit at No. 5.
