Gonzaga heading to No. 1?

Spokane is about to implode on itself from the combined weight of it becoming the center of the college basketball universe. First, Gonzaga was recently ranked No. 2 in the AP Poll, and last night the No. 1 team Indiana lost to Minnesota 77-73, which means the Zags could be looking at their first No. 1 ranking in school history. 

Now there is a chance they could get leap-frogged by Miami or Duke, but considering they've been ranked as high as No. 2 already and receiving first place votes, you'd think the voters would also give them the nod for No. 1. 

But hold on, Gonzaga still has to win their games this week to be considered. And it won't be easy.

Coming up, the Zags travel down to Utah to face 20-9 Brigham Young on Thursday, then on Saturday will host the 11-19 Portland Pilots. They might be a little slowed from travel to BYU in the Portland game.

If they win those two, expect the Zags to be No. 1 and be shocked if they aren't.
