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.
