Stanford remains No. 1 in The Associated Press women’s basketball poll for the sixth straight week, matching the team’s longest run in the top spot.
The Cardinal had 24 first-place votes Monday, while Connecticut received 14. Baylor got the other two.
UConn will visit Stanford on Saturday, trying to snap the Cardinal’s 82-game home winning streak. Stanford, which beat South Carolina and Tennessee on the road last week, was No. 1 for six weeks in 1996.
Duke and Notre Dame round out the first five.
The Irish are followed by Georgia, Kentucky, California and Maryland, as the top nine teams remain unchanged.
Tennessee fell three spots from No. 10 after losing to Baylor and Stanford. UCLA had the biggest drop, falling five spots to 17th after losing to Cal State Northridge.
Arkansas entered the poll at No. 25 as West Virginia fell out.
