For the third week in a row, Gonzaga, Villanova, and Kansas top the Associated Press men’s college basketball poll. Gonzaga remains #1 with its 28-and-0 record, and plays at the University of San Diego Thursday night, then closes out the regular season hosting BYU Saturday in Spokane.
Meantime, the Pac-12 joins the Zags at the top of the ladder as Arizona is rated 5th, followed by UCLA, and Oregon 7th. Louisville, North Carolina, Baylor and Duke round out the new top-10.
The Ducks close out league play with 3 road games starting Wednesday night at 530pm here on KBND when Oregon faces Cal. Oregon visits Stanford on Saturday, and then Oregon State a week from Saturday.
The Ducks trail Arizona by one game for the Pac-12 lead, and have a game-and-a-half lead over UCLA who plays at Arizona this weekend.
On the women’s side…U-Conn is still number one with a 26-and-0 record. Maryland is ranked 2nd, followed by Mississippi State, Baylor, and Notre Dame.
Oregon State’s women, 25-and-3, are rated 10th with Washington behind them at #11, and Stanford ahead of the Beavers at #9. OSU hosts Stanford Friday night at 8pm to break the first-place tie in the Pac-12. The lady Huskies are lurking right behind them both, just one game back.
