BY foxsports • February 1, 2016

Tennessee's streak of being ranked in The Associated Press women's basketball poll will continue for another week.

The Lady Vols have been in the Top 25 for 563 straight weeks starting on Feb. 17, 1985.

Tennessee lost by one point at Kentucky and by two points at Mississippi State last week before beating Alabama on Sunday. Tennessee fell four spots to No. 23 on Monday, marking the school's worst ranking since the Lady Vols were 24th on Nov. 12, 2012.

Tennessee hosts Arkansas on Thursday before visiting No. 12 Texas A&M on Sunday.

The top of the poll remains constant with UConn still the unanimous No. 1 choice. The Huskies easily won their two games this past week by an average of 53.5 points. UConn plays Tulane and East Carolina before a showdown at second-ranked South Carolina next Monday.

Notre Dame, Baylor and Maryland once again round out the first five teams.
