Zags in free fall: Gonzaga drops out of Top 25

SPOKANE, Wash. - Gonzaga finds itself in a bit of unfamiliar territory this week.  After losing three games in a row, the Zags are nowhere to be found in the AP Top 25.

It's been quite a fall for the Bulldogs, who were ranked as high as No. 4 in the nation earlier in the season, but have since lost three in a row.  The Zags lost 83-88 to Connecticut, 70-77 to Portland State and 65-66 to Utah.  Their last win was an 84-42 thumping of Texas Southern on December 18.

The Zags play at No. 15 Tennessee on Wednesday before opening conference play at home on Saturday.
