The Gonzaga Bulldogs are still searching for some national respect as they're ranked in one poll, but not in the other.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs (17-3, 2nd in the West Coast Conference) were squeezed out of the ESPN/USA Today Coaches poll by a mere three votes and sit as the imaginary 26th ranked team in the country, right behind the Louisville Cardinals.

But the Associated Press saw things differently as Gonzaga is ranked no. 24 after not being ranked in the last poll.

The Bulldogs have won 12 of their last 13 games with their only loss during that span suffered at the hands of Saint Mary's on Jan. 12. They've won four straight games since that loss and have BYU and Pepperdine on tap before a rematch with Saint Mary's at home on Feb. 9.

The Bulldogs are led by Elias Harris (13.7 ppg, 8.0 rpg), Kevin Pangos (13.3 ppg, 3.6 apg) and Robert Sacre (11.6 ppg, 6.7 rpg). SBNation now has the Bulldogs as a no. 8 seed in the most recent Bracketology.
