The latest college basketball rankings are out, and the Gonzaga Bulldogs have crept back into the top 25. Gonzaga is at No. 25 in the latest Associated Press poll, in advance of their West Coast Conference matchup against the Pepperdine Waves on Thursday night.
There are no Pac-12 teams in the 25, but both Bay Area teams are in the "others receiving votes" section. The Stanford Cardinal moved up four spots in the AP poll, from No. 32 to No. 28, after a weekend sweep of the UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans at home. The Cal Bears, who also swept USC and UCLA, received all of two votes to tie for No. 38 in the AP poll. There have been no Pac-12 teams ranked in the top 25 for each of the last five weeks.
Here is the AP poll top 10:
- Syracuse (60 first place votes)
- Kentucky (five first place votes)
- North Carolina
- Ohio State
- Michigan State
