SPOKANE, Wash. -- T-shirts rolled off of production lines Monday morning touting Gonzaga’s new ranking.
For the first time in university history, the Gonzaga men’s basketball team ranked number one Monday in both polls. A group of 64 sports writers and broadcasters across the nation vote in the Associated Press poll. Prior to last week’s move to number two, the highest Gonzaga had ever been in the AP poll was number three back in 2004.
Zome Design printed shirts within minutes of the Monday announcement. The Gonzaga University apparel reads “Top Dog Ranking #1.”
The Collegiate Licensing Corporation and Gonzaga University officially licensed the garments.
