College Basketball Rankings: Gonzaga tumbles to No. 4 following loss to BYU

New, 21 comments

The question wasn’t when, it was just how far they would fall.

NCAA Basketball: Brigham Young at Gonzaga James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The Gonzaga Bulldogs fell to No. 4 in the latest AP top 25, released on Monday, Feb. 27. The Zags fell from No. 1, where they had enjoyed the luxuries of being the top team in the nation for four-straight weeks.

Kansas is the new No. 1 team, securing 58 first place votes. Villanova remained at No. 2, and UCLA jumped up to No. 3 after defeating Arizona on Saturday.

For what it is worth, the Zags are still looked highly upon by some voters, snaring two first-place votes despite the loss.

Gonzaga’s 79-71 loss to BYU on Senior Night set the stage for all of this to happen. If anything, it ensures that the Zags will finish out the regular season ranked somewhere in the top 5, assuming there are no future losses on the horizon in the WCC Tournament.
