Gonzaga joined Florida, Texas A&M and Butler in being kicked out of the last AP Top 25 college basketball poll.

The poll, released Monday morning, shows Gonzaga at the top of the list of those receiving votes but not included in the Top 25. The Zags had 129 votes. The next on the list was Georgia Tech with 102.

Gonzaga, which did not play a game last week, is still reeling from a blowout loss to Duke Dec. 19 at Madison Square Garden. The Zags lost 76-41, scoring the least amount of points in a game in 25 years.

The Zags return to the court Monday against Eastern Washington from the Big Sky Conference. The Eagles most recently lost to Chicago State and Jackson State at the Hoop TV Las Vegas Tournament. The game, shown live on KHQ and SWX (except in the Tri-Cities, Yakima areas) will be the Zags' first home game since Dec. 9.
