Gonzaga remains entrenched at No. 1 in The Associated Press men's college basketball poll in its bid to go wire-to-wire.
The Zags received 61 of 63 first-place votes from a media panel in the poll released Monday as they attempt to become the first wire-to-wire No. 1 since Kentucky in 2014-15.

Baylor had two first-place votes and moved back into the No. 2 slot after dropping a spot last week.
Illinois, Michigan and Iowa rounded out the top 5. No. 8 Arkansas is in the top 10 for the first time since reaching No. 1 in 1994-95.
Gonzaga plays Saint Mary's in the West Coast Conference Tournament semifinals Monday night and would advance to the title game Tuesday with a win. The Zags (24-0) are the only remaining undefeated team in Division I.
