NEW YORK -- UConn remains the top choice in The Associated Press women's basketball poll.

The Huskies (22-0) were still the unanimous No. 1 by the 32-member national media panel Monday. They routed No. 7 South Carolina on Thursday and then blew out Cincinnati on Sunday.

The first five teams were unchanged in the poll with Mississippi State, Baylor, Louisville and Notre Dame following UConn. The Bulldogs (23-0) host the Gamecocks on Monday night in a key Southeastern Conference clash.

Texas moved up two spots to sixth while UCLA, Oregon and Maryland round out the first 10 teams in the poll. The Ducks dropped three places after losing to then-No. 24 Stanford on Sunday night.

The 17th-ranked Cardinal made the biggest jump in the Top 25, moving up seven spots.

N.C. State entered the poll at No. 23 and Arizona State came in at 25 while West Virginia and California dropped out.
