Gonzaga Continues Climb Up Polls

Posted: Updated:

The Gonzaga Bulldogs continue to win, and as a result climb up the national rankings. Gonzaga moves up two spots in this week's Associated Press Poll, now ranked third in the nation.  They remain third in the USA Today Coaches Poll, picking up three first place votes.  The Bulldogs received two first place votes in the AP.  Indiana is first in both polls, followed by Miami then Gonzaga.  This ties the highest AP ranking the 'Zags have ever received, matching the final two polls of  the 2004 season.

The Bulldogs (25-2) remain unbeaten in the West Coast Conference and host Santa Clara this Wednesday followed by San Diego on Saturday.  You can see Saturday's game live on SWX and KHQ starting at 4pm.
