UConn women still No. 1 in AP basketball poll

Connecticut stays No. 1 in The Associated Press poll after two more double-digit victories over ranked opponents.

The Huskies had their closest game of the season at Baylor, ending the then-No. 7 Lady Bears' 69-game home winning streak last Monday night with an 11-point victory. UConn then routed Rutgers by 30 on Sunday. The Huskies host Memphis and South Florida this week.

Notre Dame, Duke, Stanford and Louisville followed the unbeaten Huskies, with the first five teams unchanged in Monday's vote. Maryland, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, Kentucky and South Carolina round out the top 10.

West Virginia jumped in at No. 18, continuing to win impressively. Gonzaga rejoined the poll at No. 25 while Rutgers and Colorado fell out.
