For the first time in school history, the Gonzaga Bulldogs are atop the AP Top 25 college basketball rankings.

Gonzaga, winners of their last 12 contests, received 29 first-place votes to unseat Indiana as the number one team in the country. The Bulldogs come off a convincing win over Portland, 81-52, to clinch the regular season crown in the West Coast Conference. Gonzaga will enter not only as the No. 1 seed in the West Coast Conference tournament but as the top team in the nation.

Former number one, Indiana, drops down a spot followed by Duke, Kansas and Georgetown to round out the top five.

Gonzaga finished a perfect 16-0 in West Coast Conference play and 29-2 overall. Gonzaga will play in the WCC conference semifinal on March 9th.
