NCAA Basketball: Eastern Washington at Gonzaga James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The BTPowerhouse Top 25 is back this week with Gonzaga bringing some stability to the top spot. In a year in which five top-ranked teams have lost the spot, Gonzaga retains the no. 1 ranking for consecutive weeks.

Elsewhere there’s still major shuffling. Two of the top 5 lost this week and teams like West Virginia and Penn State are the big movers. Take a look at how the poll shakes out entering a week in which conference play begins.
