When the NCAA women’s basketball polls were posted here last week, the UConn Huskies were No. 1 in the AP Poll while the Stanford Cardinal were the No. 1 team in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
As stated before, this is because the AP Poll comes out on Monday and the Coaches Poll on Tuesday. I know it makes no sense to me either.
This week’s polls were released and we find the South Carolina Gamecocks as the top team in the AP Poll while the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are No. 1 in the Coaches Poll.
The Gamecocks are followed by Notre Dame, UConn, the Tennessee Volunteers and Stanford in the AP Poll. In the Coaches Poll, Notre Dame is followed by South Carolina, UConn, Stanford and Tennessee.
There are no other teams from the American Athletic Conference ranked this week. The South Florida Bulls are among the others receiving votes in both polls while the Tulane Green Wave are among the others receiving votes in the Coaches Poll.
