Baylor remains the unanimous choice as the No. 1 team in the Associated Press women's college basketball poll while Oklahoma fell from the rankings for the first time in seven seasons.
The Lady Bears received all 39 first-place ballots Monday after two wins this week. They play No. 2 Connecticut on Sunday in Waco. It's the second consecutive season they have met as the top two teams in the poll. The Huskies edged the Lady Bears in Hartford last season by one point.
Notre Dame, Stanford and Maryland remained the rest of the top five. The Irish host No. 8 Kentucky on Sunday.
Oklahoma dropped out of the poll for the first time since the end of the 2004-05 season. Nebraska entered at No. 25.
