Bulldogs Back In AP, USA Today Top 10

Posted: Updated:

By Gonzaga Athletics

For the second time this season, Gonzaga University's men's basketball team finds itself back in the Associated Press and USA Today Top 10, the Bulldogs moving up three spots in both polls released Monday.

Gonzaga won't have to wait long to put their Top 10 spot on the line as the Bulldogs face Oklahoma State University – 21st in AP and 22nd in USA Today – today at 3 p.m. PST on ESPN2 in the match-up of Top 25 teams at Gallagher-Iba Arena on the OSU campus.

The Bulldogs were last ranked 10th the week of Dec. 3, but Gonzaga lost a home game to then 13th-ranked University of Illinois to fall out of the Top 10. Gonzaga has been ranked all nine weeks this season. Gonzaga trails the University of Minnesota in the AP rankings and the University of Florida in the USA Today balloting.

Duke University, which defeated Bulldog West Coast Conference foe Santa Clara University last weekend, remained No. 1 for the third straight week.

Following tonight's game against OSU, the Zags will head to Pepperdine University to open WCC play Thursday, then conclude the three-games-in-six-days stretch Saturday at Santa Clara.
