UNC's Streak In AP Women's Poll Ends
Feb. 15, 2010
(AP) - North Carolina fell out of The Associated Press women's basketball poll Monday for the first time in 163 weeks, while Connecticut pushed its remarkable run at No. 1 to 39 straight weeks.
The Tar Heels dropped from the ranking for the first time since Nov. 19, 2001. It was the fifth-longest active streak in the country behind Tennessee, Connecticut, Duke and Stanford, and ended three weeks after the North Carolina men's program fell from the Top 25.
The Huskies, meanwhile, have won 64 straight games after beating DePaul and St. John's last week - all by double digits. Connecticut (25-0) visits No. 11 Oklahoma on Monday night.
Stanford, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Tennessee followed the Huskies in the top 5.
