There was zero movement in the top 10 in the latest AP poll, which means the Gonzaga Bulldogs are still your No. 5 team.
AP Poll - Week 11
|17||North Carolina State||586||15|
The Zags are coming off a dominating win over Pacific and a thrilling win over San Francisco on the road. That said, as is the case with WCC play, the Zags will only rise in the rankings if the team ahead of them loses. No such luck quite yet.
Elsewhere around the polls, the only real interesting nugget of information is the Washington Huskies are now receiving votes. The Huskies are undefeated in the dumpster fire that is Pac 12 basketball this year, and the Zags own a narrow two-point win over Washington. Their success equals a better statement for the Zags come Selection Sunday.
There will be some movement in the polls next week potentially. No. 4 Virginia plays No. 1 Duke on the road on Saturday. There is quite the gulf between Virginia and Gonzaga in terms of points and votes, so, most likely, a Virginia loss to Duke, unless it is a catastrophic one, shouldn’t ding them too bad.
