The Zags (3-0) worked their way through a pair of blowout wins last week. They beat West Virginia 84-50, and then followed that up with a 96-58 win over South Dakota on Sunday.

Indians is still the No. 1 team on the poll and Louisville is second. Kentucky dropped to No. 8, with Ohio State and Michigan moving up. Duke moved from No. 9 to No. 5.

Coach Mark Few and the crew are headed to Florida this week for a Thanksgiving game against Clemson in the first round of the Old Spice Classic. The winner of that game will play either UTEP or Oklahoma in the second round on Friday. The championship game is on Sunday.

Other first-round games on Thursday include: West Virginia vs. Marist; Vanderbilt vs. Davidson; and UTEP vs. Oklahoma.
