Gonzaga is ranked No. 12 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches’ preseason Top 25.
The Spokane Shock didn’t play last week, but they were poised to climb into the No. 1 spot in the AFL coaches poll when top-ranked Milwaukee lost to Arizona.
It didn’t happen. Spokane remained No. 2 in the Week 10 rankings while Jacksonville, which lost the Shock two weeks ago, vaulted from No. 3 to No. 1. Milwaukee dropped to No. 3 and Spokane West Division rival Arizona moved up two spots to fourth.
Gonzaga came in 34th, receiving 24 votes, in the ESPN/USA Today (coaches) preseason Top 25. Kansas is No. 1, followed by Michigan State (Gonzaga visits East Lansing on Nov. 17th).
Of the eight schools in the Maui Invitational, No. 26 Maryland, No. 30 Vanderbilt and GU were in the receiving votes category. Arizona, Wisconsin and Cincinnati didn’t receive one vote. Gonzaga also faces No. 8 Duke and No. 16 Oklahoma, as well as three other teams receiving votes (No. 27 Illinois, Wake Forest and Memphis).
