Gonzaga is no one-week wonder at No. 1.
The Bulldogs beat Loyola Marymount 66-48 in its first - and so far only - game as the nation's top-ranked team. They will look to win the West Coast Conference title Monday night.
Gonzaga received 54 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. Duke, which received the other 11 first-place votes, moved up one spot to second after beating Virginia Tech and North Carolina last week. Indiana dropped one place to third after losing to Ohio State then rallying for the dramatic win at Michigan that gave the Hoosiers the outright Big Ten title.
Louisville jumped from eighth to No. 4 and was followed by Georgetown, Michigan, Kansas, Michigan State, Miami and Ohio State.
The week's lone newcomer is Missouri Valley Conference champion Creighton, which returns after being out of the poll the last four weeks. The Bluejays replace Oregon, which dropped out from 19th after losing two games last week.
