Gonzaga moved up to No. 1 in both with 51 first-place votes in the AP poll and 29 first-place votes in the USA Today coaches poll. The Bulldogs have the nation’s best record at 29-2, but play in the mid-major West Coast Conference.
Duke, Kansas and Georgetown rounded out the top five in the AP poll.. Kansas was No. 3 in the USA Today poll followed by Duke and Georgetown. Michigan is No. 7 in the AP poll and No. 8 in the coaches’ poll. Michigan State is No. 10 and No. 12. Ohio State moved up to No. 14 in the AP poll and No. 13 in the USA Today poll. Wisconsin is No. 22 in the AP poll and No. 21 in the coaches’ poll, giving the Big Ten five top 25 teams in both polls.
