Baylor remains No. 1 in The Associated Press women’s basketball poll for a ninth straight week while Toledo enters the Top 25 for the first time since 2001.

The Lady Bears cruised to wins over Oklahoma and West Virginia and will try for their 40th straight Big 12 regular-season victory Monday night against Kansas State.

No. 2 Notre Dame and No. 3 Connecticut also play Monday night for the Big East regular-season crown. The Irish already have clinched a share of the title by beating the Huskies by a point in January.

Stanford and California are fourth and fifth. Duke fell one spot to sixth. Kentucky, Penn State, Tennessee and Maryland round out the first 10.

Toledo has won 14 straight and is No. 25. LSU also jumped in at No. 22. Iowa State and Purdue dropped out.
