Just like the final men’s basketball ESPN/USA Today Coaches Top 25, the women’s poll features a non-unanimous No. 1 team. Texas A&M, who beat Notre Dame in the women’s finals on Tuesday night, received 29-of-30 first place votes in the final poll. One coach didn’t vote and the other voted for the UConn Huskies, who finish the season as the No. 3 team in the land.
Joining the Huskies in the top 10 from the Big East are the runnerup Notre Dame Fighting Irish (No. 2) and the DePaul Blue Demons (No. 10). Other Big East teams in the top 25 are the Georgetown Hoyas (No. 14), Louisville Cardinals (No. 19) and the Marquette Golden Eagles (No. 25).
The West Virginia Mountaineers, Rutgers Scarlet Knights and the St. John’s Red Storm were among the others receiving votes.
