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

The Lady Bears had easy victories over Texas Tech and Oklahoma State and have 32 straight Big 12 regular-season wins. Baylor had 37 first-place votes Monday and will host Kansas before visiting Texas this week.

The first six stayed unchanged with Notre Dame, Connecticut, Stanford, Duke and California following the Lady Bears. UConn got the other three first place votes.

Maryland moved up three spots to seventh while Penn State, Georgia and Kentucky round out the first 10. The Lady Bulldogs moved up four spots after beating the Wildcats.

Delaware made the biggest move, climbing five spots to No. 20.

Syracuse entered the poll at No. 24– its first appearance in two years. Iowa dropped out a week after entering the poll.
