Gamecocks up one in latest AP top 25 poll

NEW YORK — UConn has extended its run at No. 1 in The Associated Press women’s basketball poll.

The Huskies (30-0) have been the unanimous top choice all season from the 32-member media panel. They are set to play in a semifinal of the American Athletic Conference tournament Monday night against Cincinnati. The Huskies are 99-0 against AAC opponents since the formation of the conference, 86-0 in regular-season games and 13-0 in conference tournaments.

Baylor moved up to second and Louisville third after then-No. 2 Mississippi State lost to South Carolina in the SEC title game. The Bulldogs slipped to fourth. Notre Dame was fifth.

Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, UCLA and Ohio State round out the top 10.

Most of the major conferences finished their tournaments this weekend, with just the Big 12 title game Monday night featuring Baylor and Texas.
