The UConn Huskies are No. 1 again.

After eight-straight victories, including against former No. 1 South Carolina, UConn sits atop the AP women's basketball poll after receiving 26 of 30 first-place votes.

It is the ninth-straight season where the Huskies will be ranked No. 1 for at least one week.

"You appreciate it for sure when you see how hard it is that other really, really good programs [don't do it]," head coach Geno Auriemma said. "It does bring a sense of, yeah we're fortunate that we put ourselves in that position every year."
