Kudos to the Gonzaga Bulldogs on reaching the No. 1 ranking for the first time in school history. At 29-2 the so-called "mid-major" has the best record in Division 1 basketball and took over the No. 1 ranking from the Indiana Hoosiers who lost to Minnesota last week. The Zags are the fifth different school to hold the elusive top spot so far this season.
Gonzaga is also the third non-Big Six school to reach the No. 1 ranking in the past decade, following in the footsteps of Memphis (2007-08) and St. Joseph's (2003-04).
