College basketball rankings: Wisconsin's slide continues in Top 25 (and 1)
The Badgers have dropped two straight and no longer lead the Big Ten outright
Gonzaga cruised to another win Thursday -- beating San Francisco 96-61 to improve to 27-0 with 24 double-digit wins. Nigel Williams-Goss, a National Player of the Year candidate, finished with 30 points, seven assists, six rebounds and three steals.
So the Zags are one step closer to a perfect regular season — one that KenPom (and anybody with decent eyeballs) is now projecting to happen. Gonzaga will likely be at least 20-point favorites in each of its three remaining regular-season games, then big favorites in every West Coast Conference Tournament game. Consequently, a 33-0 record on Selection Sunday is a probable scenario, at this point.
Gonzaga remains No. 1 in the Top 25 (and one).
