New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Connecticut remained a unanimous choice as
the top women's college basketball team in the latest Associated Press poll.

The Huskies received all 36 first-place votes and 900 points from a national media panel after dominating wins over ranked opponents Duke and California last week.

Duke was No. 2 when UConn claimed an 83-61 victory in Durham. The loss helped knock the Blue Devils down a spot to third, behind Notre Dame, which moved up two places from fourth to second. Stanford inched up a couple of places to fourth after Saturday's 76-70 win over Tennessee, which dipped two spots to fifth.

Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Baylor and North Carolina complete the top 10. Kentucky slipped one place to sixth after a 69-61 loss to Duke on Sunday, while North Carolina climbed four places from 14th thanks to last Wednesday's 74-66 victory over then-No. 10 South Carolina.

The second 10 consists of Oklahoma State, Colorado, South Carolina, Iowa State, Penn State, LSU, Purdue, Nebraska, Georgia and Syracuse. South Carolina dropped three spots after its first loss of the season against the Tar Heels.

Iowa, Florida State, California, Gonzaga and Oklahoma are the last five teams ranked.

There are no newcomers this week.
