The dance continues at the top of the NCAA Basketball rankings, with a new No. 1 team in the country...again. On Monday morning, the latest AP Top 25 was dropped, and to no one's surprise, the Gonzaga Bulldogs hold the highest honor.

With the program from Spokane at No. 1, they become the sixth new top team in the land already this season. Talk about movement.

What Mark Few has been able to do in the Pacific Northwest truly is remarkable, with this latest highlight only adding to his impressive resume. Gonzaga is 13-1 on the year, led by Filip Petrusev's 16.7 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.

Petrusev is one of six Bulldogs who scores in double figures each night, which speaks to the balance this team has offensively.

Elsewhere in the poll, Ohio State jumped up to No. 2 in the country, while Kansas, the former No. 1 team, dropped to No. 5 after a heartbreaking 56-55 loss to Villanova over the weekend.

Louisville continued its great start to the year, which has them at No. 3, while Duke is No. 4. Perhaps even sweeter for the Blue Devils is the fact that North Carolina remains unranked.
