Baylor remains No. 1 in The Associated Press women’s basketball poll for a fourth straight week after two more Big 12 wins.

The Lady Bears cruised to victories over Iowa State and Oklahoma and have 30 straight Big 12 regular-season victories. Baylor had 37 first-place ballots Monday and will visit Texas Tech and No. 19 Oklahoma State this week. The Cowgirls had the biggest drop, falling seven spots after losing to Kansas State.

Notre Dame and UConn stayed second and third. The Huskies received the other three first-place votes. The Irish visit ninth-ranked Tennessee on Monday night.

Stanford moved up to fourth while Duke fell one spot to fifth after losing by 30 points to the Huskies last Monday.

Iowa entered the poll at No. 24 _ its first appearance since 2011. Delaware came back in the poll at No. 25.

Michigan and Michigan State dropped out.
