The college basketball is in full swing and March is just around the corner. On Monday, the Associated Press announced its latest rankings of the 2021-22 season with the Week 15 AP Top 25 poll.
Last week, there were 19 losses by ranked teams (Houston, Marquette, and St. Mary’s each lost twice), so plenty of shakeups were expected.
With the changes throughout the poll, Gonzaga has returned to the No. 1 spot in the rankings.

About the Associated Press Top 25 Poll
The Associated Press college basketball poll started on Jan. 20, 1949. The original poll had 20 teams, with Saint Louis the first school to hold the No. 1 ranking. From the 1961-62 season through 1967-68 only 10 teams were ranked. It expanded again to 20 teams from 1968-69 through 1988-89. The Top 25 began the next season, and it has stayed at that number ever since. The AP’s final poll is released after the field for the NCAA Tournament is selected.
