Baylor among static top 8 in AP poll
Baylor remained No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll for a sixth straight week after two more easy Big 12 wins.
The Lady Bears routed Kansas and Texas and have 34 straight Big 12 regular-season victories. Baylor received 37 first-place votes Monday and will host Texas Tech and TCU this week.
The first eight stayed unchanged with Notre Dame, Connecticut, Stanford and Duke rounding out the top five. UConn got the other three first-place votes. The Irish routed No. 10 Louisville on Monday night, while Duke beat Maryland.
Top 25 teams went 41-5 this week. The only two losses to unranked opponents came Sunday, when No. 13 Georgia fell at LSU and No. 18 Purdue lost to Michigan.
The Boilermakers also lost to No. 8 Penn State this week and dropped five spots in the poll.
