Baylor continues reign as top team in women's hoops

Baylor remained the top team in the latest Associated Press women's college basketball poll.

The Lady Bears, on top for a third straight week, received 35 first-place votes -- one more than last week -- and a total of 992 points from a nationwide media panel.

Nothing changed among the top 10, as Notre Dame, Connecticut, Duke, Kentucky, Stanford, California, Penn State, Tennessee and Maryland all kept their places. Notre Dame lost its lone first-place vote, while UConn again earned a pair of top tallies and Duke again garnered three.

North Carolina remained at No. 11 and was followed by Oklahoma State, Louisville, Georgia, Purdue, Texas A&M, Dayton, South Carolina and UCLA. Colorado and Oklahoma are both ranked 20th.

Oklahoma State moved up five places from 17th after a 71-42 rout of Iowa State on Sunday, while UCLA tumbled five places from 14th after road losses at Stanford and Cal.

Florida State, Michigan, Iowa State and Michigan State are the last teams ranked. Michigan State is the lone newcomer, replacing Kansas.
