Following a Saturday win over San Diego, 81-50, the Gonzaga University Bulldogs rose to No. 2 in the AP Top 25 Poll and the USA Today Coaches Poll. Indiana was No. 1 in the rankings for week 17 in the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Rankings. Filling out the top five in the AP poll were Duke (3), Michigan (4) and Miami (5). The USA Today Coaches poll listed Duke, Michigan and Kansas at 3, 4 and 5. More here.

Question: Will Gonzaga get to No. 1 before the regular basketball season is over?
