Top Dog: Gonzaga is No. 1 for 1st Time in School History

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash., -- Gonzaga, the small Northwest school known for big NCAA tournament wins, is No. 1 in The Associated Press' Top 25 for the first time in school history.

Riding the best record in Division I at 29 wins to only 2 losses, the Bulldogs took advantage of Indiana's loss to Minnesota last week.  The Bulldogs switched places with the Hoosiers, advancing from No. 2 to move comfortably into the No. 1 spot Monday morning.

Gonzaga is the fifth school to hold the top spot this season.  Indiana was the preseason No. 1 and stayed on top for nine other weeks.  Duke, Louisville and Michigan were the other No. 1s.

Duke stayed at No. 3 with five first-place votes.  Kansas and Georgetown both jumped two spots to fourth and fifth.  The Hoyas received the other two first-place votes.
