Gonzaga is no longer ranked in either of the two major polls.
The Zags, 24th in last week’s ESPN/USA Today rankings, slid into the receiving votes category when the new poll was released Monday. Gonzaga had already tumbled from the A.P. Top 25 last week, prior to Saturday’s loss to Illinois.
GU (4-3) received five points. Washington State, the Zags opponent on Wednesday in Pullman, received one point. Gonzaga has lost to current No. 5 Kansas State, No. 15 San Diego State and No. 17 Illinois (ESPN/USA Today poll rankings). The Zags still have games remaining against No. 23 Notre Dame, No. 14 Memphis and No. 9 Baylor.
GU was No. 12 in the ESPN/USA Today preseason poll.
UPDATE: CBSsports.com’s Gary Parrish still has GU 25th.
