Virtually Entire Top 25 Shifts, Except Gonzaga

Holding strong at No. 16.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs were one of two teams not to make any movement in the latest AP Poll, as the Zags begin the week ranked No. 16 again.

After spending what seemed like an eternity at No. 17, the M.O. for this year’s squad is to move up the rankings at a glacial pace. The Zags are coming off a week in which they handily defeated Saint Mary’s and needed some big late plays to defeat Pacific.

There was plenty of movement within the top 10, which reverberated throughout the polls. Connecticut lost to Baylor at home, falling to fourth place. Oregon lost to Arizona State on the road, falling to sixth. Oregon State also lost to Arizona State on the road, falling to eighth.

None of that mattered for the Zags, however, who were one of two teams to have no movement in the polls. So be it. Jenn Wirth was named WCC Player of the Week, so that is a bit of new good news for the Zags.

Gonzaga heads on the road this week to play Santa Clara and San Francisco.

Here is the full AP poll.
