Gonzaga at the Number One spot in AP Rankings for the first time in History

Gonzaga with the best record in Division I 29-2 is on the top of The Associated Press’ Top 25 for the first time.

Gonzaga Bulldogs moved to the No. 1 spot on Monday after Indiana Hoosiers loss to Minnesota Golden Gophers last week.

During the preseason, Indiana Hoosiers were No. 1 and were on top for nine other weeks. On the other hand, Duke was No. 1 for five weeks. Michigan and Louisville were both on top for one week.

The AP poll began in January 1949 and Gonzaga became the 57th school to achieve the Number one spot on The Associated Press. Before, Gonzaga was at No. 2 which was the highest ranking for the Bulldogs. After Hoosier’s defeat, the Bulldogs were on a roll defeating BYU and Portland to achieve the No. 1 spot.

Gonzaga play their first game as a No.1 team in the semifinals of the West Coast Conference tournament Saturday night.
