Baylor remains No. 1 after winning its 20th consecutive game.

The Lady Bears received 24 first-place votes Monday in the women’s college basketball poll by The Associated Press. They routed Texas on Saturday, setting up a Big 12 showdown with No. 5 Texas A&M on Monday night.

The Aggies are the only team to come within single digits of the Lady Bears during their current winning streak, losing by three on Jan. 30.

Second-ranked Connecticut had 15 first-place votes and hosts No. 14 Oklahoma on Monday before facing eighth-ranked Notre Dame Saturday. Stanford and Tennessee round out the first five.

Miami vaulted up seven spots to No. 13 after its impressive win at North Carolina on Sunday. It’s the Hurricanes’ best ranking since finishing the 1992 season at No. 6.

Gonzaga joined the poll at No. 25. The Zags were ranked for the final seven weeks last season.
