Baylor is back as the No. 1 team in The Associated Press women’s basketball poll. The Lady Bears received 32 first-place votes Monday after No. 1 Connecticut lost to Notre Dame on Saturday at Gampel Pavilion.
UConn is now No. 3, behind Notre Dame and ahead of No. 4 Duke and No. 5 Stanford.
The Lady Bears had their run of 21 straight weeks on the poll end when they lost to Stanford in November. UConn took over the top spot Dec. 29 when it beat Stanford in Palo Alto.
The Cardinal are followed by Kentucky, California, Penn State, Tennessee and Maryland.
