The Gonzaga University women's basketball team is ranked 23rd in the latest Associated Press Top 25 Poll after receiving 106 votes (94 more than a week ago) - the first time this season the Bulldogs have made the list.

Gonzaga is riding a nine-game win streak and is coming off of two West Coast Conference road wins. The Bulldogs (14-2, 3-0 WCC) defeated Pepperdine 79-50 last Thursday and Loyola Marymount 80-54 on Saturday. The Bulldogs' first home conference games of the season are this week - San Francisco (3-14, 1-3) on Thursday and Saint Mary's (12-5, 3-1 WCC) on Saturday.

The ESPN USA Today Coaches Top 25 poll is released every Tuesday. Gonzaga was No. 24 in last week's poll.
