After 19 years and 365 polls, Baylor’s streak in the Associated Press women’s college basketball rankings is over.
Ranked since January 5th, 2004 and having spent 21 weeks as the number one team in 2011-12, only Tennessee and UConn have had longer streaks in the history of the poll. Meanwhile, South Carolina has held onto the number one spot for 30 consecutive weeks, tying UConn for fourth longest all-time.
Ohio State took advantage of recent losses by other teams and has moved up to number two, their highest ranking since 2006, while LSU is now third, their highest mark since 2006. South Carolina and LSU are two of the three remaining unbeaten teams, the other being Ohio State.
