Gonzaga No. 1 In Final AP Poll

Gonzaga's first stint on top of The Associated Press' college basketball poll has run through the final Top 25 of the season.

The Bulldogs (31-2), the fourth of the four top seeds in the NCAA tournament, were a runaway No. 1 for a third straight week on Monday, receiving 45 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel.

Louisville, the overall No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, is second and got the other first-place votes. Kansas and Indiana -- the other No. 1 seeds -- are third and fourth followed by Miami, Duke, Ohio State, Georgetown, Michigan State and Michigan.

The week's lone newcomer is Pac-12 champion Oregon. The Ducks replace VCU, which lost to Saint Louis in the Atlantic 10 tournament championship game.

The top 25 teams in The Associated Press' final 2012-13 college basketball poll, with first-place votes in parentheses, records through March 17, total points based on 25 points for a first-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote and last week's ranking:
