Notre Dame, UConn still 1-2 in AP Top 25 poll

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Notre Dame and UConn still sit atop The As­so­ci­ated Press women's basketball poll while Colorado, Auburn and Texas A&M all en­tered the Top 25 rank­ings for the first time this sea­son.

Af­ter a busy eight days, Auburn coach Terri Wil­liams-Flournoy gave her team a much needed day off.

The Tigers won four of the five games in that stretch with the lone loss com­ing against No. 16 West Vir­ginia. That was good enough to get Auburn ranked Mon­day for the first time since 2009, when the Tigers en­tered The As­so­ci­ated Press women’s basketball poll at No. 23.

“I think it shows them what their hard work can do,” Wil­liams-Flournoy said. “But we can’t be­come com­pla­cent. We’re there, now they have to un­der­stand we have to work harder.”

Notre Dame and UConn still sit atop the poll with the Ir­ish re­main­ing No. 1. They re­ceived 16 first place bal­lots with the Huskies get­ting 14.

Third-ranked South Carolina gar­nered the other three from a 33-mem­ber na­tional me­dia panel. Bay­lor and Mary­land each moved up one spot to round out the first five teams.
