NEW YORK (AP) — UConn remains the No. 1 team in The Associated Press women's basketball poll while the rest of the top five were shuffled Monday. The Huskies improved their winning streak to 103 games, cruising to wins over Temple and Memphis. UConn closes out its regular season Monday at South Florida. Baylor, Notre Dame, Maryland and South Carolina follow UConn. The Terrapins dropped two spots after losing to then-No. 12 Ohio State last week. The Buckeyes moved up to ninth. Mississippi State fell to sixth after losing in overtime to Kentucky and getting routed by Tennessee. Oregon State climbed four spots to move into a tie for sixth. Florida State and Stanford round out the first 10 teams
This past week, North Carolina defeated Louisville by 11 points and blew out Pitt by almost 20 to win their last four games in a row. Duke also lost to Syracuse and Miami, allowing UNC to clinch the no. 1 seed in the ACC Tournament. Louisville, Florida State, Notre Dame, and Duke will compete for the remaining top seeds, with the first three all sitting at 11-5, while the Blue Devils are at 10-6. The Tar Heels head into the final week of the season with a 13-3 record. They must win one of their games in order to be declared the ACC winner. Losing both games will open them up for the possibility of having to share the regular season title with another team. UNC will face Virginia on the road later
