GU women gaining more votes in AP women’s poll

UPDATED: Mon., Dec. 6, 2021

The Gonzaga women are getting more support in The Associated Press poll, but not enough to make the top 25.

In the poll released Monday, the Zags (7-1) received 15 votes – more than double the 7 from a week ago.

Unofficially, that leaves them 32nd overall, or 7 spots from the top 25.

The Zags played only one game last week, edging Wyoming 54-47 on Friday night at the Kennel.

Also receiving votes is Washington State, which visits the Kennel for an important nonconference game Wednesday night. The Cougars (6-1) received 4 votes in Monday’s poll.

Preseason West Coast Conference favorite BYU continued to climb in the rankings. The Cougars (8-0) moved up five spots, to a program-best 16th, after beating in-state rival Utah, 85-80.

The top five teams are unchanged: South Carolina, North Carolina State, UConn, Stanford and Baylor.
