Gonzaga dropped four spots in the AP Top 25 poll Monday after losing their first game of the season last week.

The Zags went from No. 10 to No. 14 in the poll released Monday. They lost 85-74 to then-No. 13 Illinois. The Fighting Illini consequently rose to No. 10 this week.

‘[Illinois] bothered us all night on the bounce, we just could not keep them in front and I thought that might be a problem going into this thing," said coach Mark Few after the game.

Indiana remained atop the polls for the sixth straight week, followed by Duke, Michigan and Syracuse. Louisville and Florida swapped places at Nos. 5 and 6.

Gonzaga plays Kansas State on Saturday at KeyArena in Seattle in the annual Battle in Seattle. Game time is 6 p.m. on ESPN2.
