It’s been quite a season for two college basketball teams in Washington. The Gonzaga men’s team is ranked No. 1 in the nation. And the University of Washington women are 10th in the country. But it’s quite a different story for the UW men’s team.

It's the topic of this week's chat between knkx sports commentator Art Thiel and 88.5's Kirsten Kendrick.

With 22 straight wins and no losses, the Gonzaga University men’s basketball team are the only undefeated NCAA Division 1 basketball team in the nation. And now the Bulldogs have secured the top ranking in the country’s two major polls.
