The Gonzaga Bulldogs are the No. 1 team in the nation in the latest AP Poll, marking three-straight weeks on top for the Zags.
AP Poll - Week 19
We can ignore the fact that Gonzaga hasn’t played a game in nine days, so there was no room to really move up or down in the polls. As it stands now, the Zags, presuming they win the WCC Tournament like they most definitely should, will enter the postseason as the No. 1 team in the nation, the first time since the 2013 season.
The Zags actually lost a first-place vote this week, but that is fine because Duke also lost its only first-place vote as well.
Otherwise, there isn’t quite much to say about the latest AP Poll, other than being No. 1 sure is a lot of fun. Now, the Zags have two games in the WCC Tournament and are setting their sites on a No. 1 seed, possibly a No. 1 overall seed (more on that later this week).
