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.
    
Riding the best record in Division I at 29-2, 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.
    
Gonzaga is the fifth school to hold the top spot this season. Indiana was the preseason No. 1 and 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.

You can buy Gonzaga t-shirts at Sport Town located at Main and Stevens and the Gonzaga bookstore.
