Stanford is the new No. 1 team in the nation, barely edging Connecticut for the top spot in The Associated Press women's basketball poll Monday.

The Cardinal jumps from fourth after beating former No. 1 Baylor 71-69 on Friday night, ending the Lady Bears' 42-game winning streak. Baylor, which was first in the previous 21 polls, falls to third.

Stanford receives 21 first place votes, while Connecticut has 17. Baylor gets the other one. It's the Cardinal's first time at No. 1 since the final poll of the 2005 season.

Duke is fourth and Notre Dame fifth. The Blue Devils were the last team to jump from the fourth spot to No. 1. They did it in 2003 after beating then-No. 1 UConn by a point.

UCLA, Kansas, Dayton and North Carolina all move into the Top 25, while Delaware, Texas A&M, Miami and Georgetown fall out.
