NCAA basketball rankings: Gonzaga cracks the top 10

The Bulldogs are in the top 10 of the AP poll for the first time since 2008.


The Gonzaga Bulldogs landed at No. 10 in both the latest editions of the coaches poll and the AP poll released on Monday morning.

After another two convincing wins, the Bulldogs made it to the top 10 of the AP poll for the first time since since landing at No. 7 in December of 2008.

The undefeated Zags face their toughest test of the season this week as they head on the road to take on the Washington State Cougars and then play host to the No. 13 Illinois Fighting Illini.

There was plenty of other activity in the polls. The Kentucky Wildcats fell all the way from No. 8 to unranked in the AP poll after losing two games last week. It was the largest single week drop since the AP poll expanded to 25 teams in 1990.

Ohio State dropped from out of the top-5 of both rankings after a loss to Duke. Indiana, Duke, Michigan and Syracuse are ranked first through fourth in both polls, with Louisville No. 5 in the AP poll and Florida No. 5 in the coaches poll.
