NCAA Basketball: San Diego State at Gonzaga James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The Gonzaga Bulldogs rose a bit in the rankings thanks to some turmoil up top. A loss by Oregon set the stage for the Zags to gain some ground following their impressive win over San Diego State at the beginning of the week.

Gonzaga looked extra sharp in a 69-48 win over San Diego State on Monday. The Zags followed it up with a decent enough effort against Bryant University on Friday, winning 109-70. There will be plenty of basketball coming forward this week, with the Zags taking part in the AdvoCare Invitational. A second round matchup against either Seton Hall or Florida, both receiving votes, looms on Friday.
