The Lady Bears cruised to wins over Kansas State and West Virginia and have 28 straight Big 12 regular-season victories. Baylor had 35 first-place ballots.

The Lady Bears will face No. 24 Iowa State and 20th-ranked Oklahoma this week.

Notre Dame, UConn, Duke and Kentucky round out the first five. The Blue Devils, the last unbeaten team in Division I basketball, visit the Huskies on Monday night.

The Wildcats are followed by Stanford, California, Penn State, Tennessee and Maryland. None of the Top 10 teams changed as they went 18-0, winning by an average of 22.5 points.

Michigan State entered the poll at No. 25 while Kansas fell out.
