Tennessee Slides To Lowest Ranking In 23 Years
Feb. 9, 2009
Not even Tennessee coach Pat Summitt's 1,000th career victory could prevent the Lady Vols from dropping to their lowest Top 25 ranking in 23 years.
Prior to the milestone win over Georgia, Tennessee lost to Oklahoma, and fell three spots to No. 15 in the latest AP women's college basketball poll.
Connecticut remains the unanimous No. 1 choice for an 11th straight week, while Oklahoma is a unanimous No. 2.
UConn is 23-0 for the first time since 2002-03. The Huskies face St. John's on Wednesday before hosting No. 19 Pittsburgh on Sunday.
California is third, with Duke and Auburn rounding out the top five.
The last time Tennessee was ranked so low was the final ballot of the 1985-86 season.
