Connecticut up to No. 2, South Carolina still No. 1 in AP poll

South Carolina remains No. 1 in The Associated Press poll for the third consecutive week after a last-second victory against Duke on Sunday.

The Gamecocks trailed the Blue Devils for most of the game before a putback by star freshman A'ja Wilson with 1.8 seconds left rallied the team. South Carolina has 23 first-place votes.

Connecticut moved up to No. 2 after beating Notre Dame on Saturday. The Huskies received seven first-place ballots. Texas is third, drawing four first-place votes. Texas A&M advanced a spot to fourth. The Irish dropped to fifth.

North Carolina, Stanford, Kentucky, Baylor and Louisville round out the top 10. Duke fell to 13th, ending a 93-week run in the top 10 that began in 2008-09.

Arkansas fell out.
