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

The Lady Bears received all the first-place votes Monday for the seventh straight week after routing Oklahoma State and Texas.

Baylor has a challenging week ahead, visiting No. 17 Texas Tech and hosting No. 23 Kansas State. The Wildcats entered the Top 25 for the first time since the final poll of 2009 after beating then-No. 10 Texas Tech by one point.

Notre Dame, Connecticut, Stanford and Duke followed Baylor. Kentucky jumped to sixth after beating Tennessee and South Carolina. Rutgers was seventh and Maryland fell to eighth after losing at Miami for its first loss. The Lady Vols and Ohio State round out the first 10.

Penn State rejoined the poll at No. 22 after defeating Nebraska, which fell from 15th to 20th. Gonzaga and South Carolina dropped out a week after entering the Top 25.
