Stanford still No. 1 in women's basketball poll; Aggies in at 23

By  | 

Stanford remains No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll, narrowly ahead of Connecticut.

The Cardinal had 22 first-place votes Monday, while UConn received 16. Baylor got the other two. Stanford had the week off for exams, while the Huskies beat Maryland and Penn State by 15 points each. The Lady Bears topped Notre Dame by 12 in a rematch of last season's NCAA championship game.

Duke and Notre Dame remain fourth and fifth.

The Irish are followed by Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville and Maryland. California and Penn State swapped places. Texas A&M, South Carolina and West Virginia entered the poll in the final three spots.

Nebraska, Florida State and Iowa State all dropped out.

It's a light schedule this week with most schools in exams.
