It’s a few weeks be­fore Notre Dame and UConn face each other and a lot could change be­fore then. For now, the two peren­nial bas­ket­ball pow­ers sit atop The Associated Press women’s bas­ket­ball poll. Both teams re­ceived 16 first place votes from the 33-mem­ber na­tional media panel Mon­day. The Ir­ish re­mained the No. 1 team in the poll af­ter knock­ing off thenNo. 17 Wash­ing­ton to win the Pre­sea­son WNIT on Sun­day. That vic­tory came a few days af­ter a slim four-point win over Green Bay.

UConn also was un­beaten on the week, top­ping Florida State in the Huskies opener be­fore beat­ing then-No. 2 Baylor last Thurs­day. UConn capped off its week with a vic­tory at LSU on Sun­day for the team’s 78th con­sec­u­tive vic­tory. The Huskies would still have to beat two other ranked teams — No. 18 DePaul and No. 14 Texas be­fore fac­ing the Ir­ish in South Bend, In­di­ana on Dec. 7.
