Zags No. 3, 5 In National Polls

Indiana remains at No. 1 in The Associated Press’ Top 25 despite losing a game this week, surviving a week of upsets to become the first team in over a month to hold onto the top ranking. Gonzaga (23-2) did receive two first-place votes, but moved just one spot to No. 5. The Zags moved up to No. 3 in the USA Today poll, which is voted on by the coaches. They were No. 6 past week. The last time the Bulldogs were fifth or higher in the AP poll was Dec. 8, 2008, when Gonzaga was ranked fourth. The highest ever AP ranking for the Zags is third the final two weeks of the 2004 season. Gonzaga last received first-place votes the final two polls of the 2006 season when they received one in each of those polls/Associated Press. More here. (AP file photo)

Question: Will the Zags reach No. 1 if they win out?
