Zag fans knew it was coming. The Zags fell six spots in Monday's Associated Press Top 25 poll, going from No. 13 to No. 18 after Thursday's loss at Loyola Marymount.

Gonzaga (22-5) also fell in the ESPN/USAToday coaches poll, sliding all the way to No. 15.

After Thursday's stumble against the Lions, they came out on fire against Pepperdine, beating the Waves 72-54. Even with the loss they hold a 1-game lead over Saint Mary's and can clinch the regular season league title Thursday in Spokane against Santa Clara.

After Santa Clara the Zags host San Francisco, the other team that beat them this season in conference play. They wrap up the regular season on March 2 against Cal St. Bakersfield before playing at the WCC Tournament in Las Vegas March 5-8.
