The complete NCAA women’s basketball rankings are out for the week and after some upsets at the top, the UConn Huskies have moved up to No. 2 in both polls.
For those who didn’t know this, the AP Poll comes out on Mondays while the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll comes out on Tuesdays. So if you’re wondering why the Stanford Cardinal moved up in the AP Poll but dropped in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll after losing to UConn last night, you now know why.
The Baylor Lady Bears have a nice firm grasp on the No. 1 spot in both polls and are followed by UConn, Stanford, Notre Dame and Texas A&M in the AP Poll. In the Coaches’ Poll, Baylor is followed by UConn, Notre Dame, Texas A&M and Stanford.
Joining the Huskies and Fighting Irish in the top 25 from the Big East are the Louisville Cardinals (11/12), Rutgers Scarlet Knights (13/13), Georgetown Hoyas (21/21) and the DePaul Blue Demons (23/20).
There are no Big East teams among the others receiving votes in the AP Poll. The Syracuse Orange, St. John’s Red Storm and Villanova Wildcats are among the others receiving votes in the Coaches’ Poll.
