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

The Lady Bears received all the first-place votes Monday after
routing Lamar. The top five teams remained unchanged with UConn,
Duke, Stanford and Maryland following Baylor.

The Lady Bears have a busy week ahead. They host No. 6 Kentucky
on Tuesday before heading to Hawaii to play in the Rainbow Wahine
Classic. Baylor will face the fourth-ranked Cardinal on Friday in a
rematch of a national semifinal game from last season.

Texas jumped into the rankings at No. 19 after beating then-No.
14 St. John’s. The Red Storm fell to 20th. Georgetown also entered
the poll at No. 25 after knocking off then-No. 11 Delaware. The
Blue Hens, who fell to 17th, are missing star Elena Delle Donne,
who is dealing with symptoms of Lyme disease.

Georgia Tech and DePaul dropped out of the poll.
