UConn still unanimous No. 1 in AP women’s hoops poll
NEW YORK (AP) UConn remains the unanimous No. 1 team in The Associated Press women’s basketball poll.
There wasn’t much movement in the Top 25 this week with most schools in exam break.
The Huskies (8-0), who received all 32 votes from the national media panel on Monday, had the week off and will play on Tuesday against Oklahoma as coach Geno Auriemma goes for his 1,000th career victory. The top five teams stayed the same with Notre Dame, Louisville, South Carolina and Mississippi State following UConn.
Baylor, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia and Oregon round out the top 10. The Mountaineers and Ducks flipped spots after Oregon lost at Mississippi State.
Other poll tidbits:
OKLAHOMA BLUES: UCLA and South Florida slipped up this week losing at Oklahoma State and Oklahoma, respectively. The Bruins dropped four spots to No. 11 while the Bulls fell six places to No. 22. UCLA has a two-game eastern swing at Seton Hall and Fordham coming up before beginning Pac-12 play.
UNBEATENS: The Huskies are one of seven undefeated teams left in women’s college basketball. Louisville, West Virginia, Syracuse, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Syracuse join the No. 1 team. The Orange are the only one of the group not ranked. They get their first real test of the season against Mississippi State on Thursday.
BIG GAMES: It’s another relatively light week with Thursday being the only night with matchups of ranked teams. No. 19 Texas A&M plays Oregon in a Las Vegas tournament and Tennessee plays at 18th-ranked Stanford.
