Stanford still No. 1 in women's basketball poll; A&M up to 22

By  | 

Stanford remains No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll for the fifth straight week.

The Cardinal had 22 first-place votes Monday, while Connecticut received 16. Baylor got the other two. It was a lightly scheduled week with most schools finishing up exams. The Cardinal had only one game, routing Pacific. Stanford will head across the country to play No. 21 South Carolina and 10th-ranked Tennessee this week.

UConn, Baylor, Duke and Notre Dame rounded out the first five.

The Irish are followed by Georgia, Kentucky, California and Maryland. Louisville fell six spots to No. 14 after losing at Colorado. The win vaulted the unbeaten Buffaloes into the poll at No. 25. It's their first ranking since Jan. 14, 2008. Florida State also re-entered the Top 25 at No. 23.

Ohio State and Miami dropped out.
