Baylor remains the strong No. 1 choice in The Associated Press women’s college basketball poll.

The Lady Bears received 35 of the 40 first place ballots Monday in the first regular season poll after winning their two games this week by an average of 57 points. The schedule gets tougher with No. 22 UCLA visiting Thursday in the  emifinals of the preseason WNIT.

A showdown with No. 2 Notre Dame looms Sunday if both teams advance to the championship game.

The Irish garnered four first place votes and stayed in second place after two easy wins. Tennessee, UConn and Stanford rounded out the first five.

Texas A&M was sixth with the other first place ballot. The Aggies were followed by Miami, Duke, and Louisville. Maryland moved up one spot to 10th after routing then-No. 10 Georgetown on Sunday.

Ohio State and Texas Tech entered the poll this week as Texas and St. John’s fell out.
