The Gonzaga Bulldogs are still the nation’s No. 1 team according to the latest AP Top 25 poll.
That news isn’t too surprising, considering the Zags are currently on pause as they attempt to control the COVID outbreak that circulated through the players and staff to start the season. Gonzaga cancelled both games last week and both games this week, removing four home games off the non-conference schedule.
Teams that don’t lose, well, they tend not to fall in the rankings. Teams that do lose, such as Duke, plummet.
With all of that said, the Zags have a huge opponent coming up on Saturday against the No. 3 Iowa Hawkeyes. Iowa, powered by uber-collegiate player Luke Garza, is the nation’s new No. 1 offense according to Ken Pomeroy, taking the mantle from the Zags.
The Zags also lost their matchup to the No. 2 Baylor Bears at the beginning of the pause, and despite a dedication to rescheduling that game from both Mark few and Scott Drew, that prospect looks to be on shaky ground. Baylor’s men’s basketball team is currently on pause due to COVID as well.
