A week off from playing basketball is exactly what the doctor ordered as the Gonzaga Bulldogs women’s squad rose up to No. 16 in the latest AP Poll.
Gonzaga didn’t have a game last week thanks to the WCC Tournament and held a bye until today’s semifinal.
Presumably, if the Zags win out, there is a good shot they will finish the season ranked within the top 15. Quite the achievement for such a wonky year. That will be easier said than done, however. The Zags will most likely face a tough challenge against the BYU Cougars in the WCC Tournament Championship game. The Cougars are the one WCC team to defeat Gonzaga this season.
Here is the full AP Poll for the week.
