Gonzaga still has national credibility


Just a couple of notes today before I head out to the Gonzaga practice to talk with a couple players.

The New York Daily News' Dick Weiss has Gonzaga ranked 22nd in the nation, though he tempers it somewhat with his summary of the team's chances. Weiss, who is one of the more respected college basketball writers in the nation, also has the University of Washington 19, Memphis 15 and Duke 10, all GU opponents. Defending champion Florida is No. 1 on his list.

The Sporting News' Mike DeCourcy weighs in on the possible discontinuation of the GU series with UW.

UPDATE: The first Associated Press poll is out and GU received enough votes to be 28th. From the West, UCLA is sixth, Arizona 10, Washington 17 and Nevada 24.

Don't forget to check out Steve Bergum's GU blog.
