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