AP women’s college basketball poll: Five Pac-12 teams make Top 25

March is almost here and it’s lining up to be quite the month for Pac-12 women’s basketball.

While Stanford is still the team to beat, the conference boasts a handful of other programs that could make a deep run in the NCAA Tournament, including the surging Colorado Buffaloes. In Monday’s release of the latest AP women’s college basketball poll, a total of five Pac-12 teams made the Top 25, with the USC Trojans also receiving one vote.

Only one week remains in the Pac-12 regular season, and here’s how the conference fared in the latest release of the AP Top 25 poll:
