The Gonzaga Bulldogs are the No. 1 team in the nation for the third week in a row according to the AP voters.
Their lead on the top spot slipped a bit this week, however. Gonzaga received 63 first-place votes last week and that number dropped to 54 in this week’s poll. It is a rather deserved slide for the Zags, who by all accounts struggled through their first two games of WCC play.
On Thursday, the Zags entered the second half trailing the Portland Pilots. On Saturday, at home, Gonzaga played one of their closer games of the season, defeating the Pepperdine Waves by just five points.
Elsewhere around the top 10, losses by Ohio State, Oregon, and Louisville allowed for quite a bit of movement. Undefeated San Diego State made a big jump from No. 13 to No. 7. Michigan State, which Gonzaga beat in a scrimmage this year, finally entered the top 10 again.
Here is the full AP poll for Week 10.
