Connecticut remains No. 1 in The Associated Press poll after two easy victories while Middle Tennessee makes it first appearance in the poll since 2009.

The Huskies routed both Memphis and South Florida to improve to 21-0 this season. UConn visits Temple and Cincinnati this week where Geno Auriemma will coach against two of his former assistants.

Notre Dame, Duke, Stanford and Louisville followed the Huskies, with the first five teams unchanged in Monday’s vote. The second-ranked Irish are also unbeaten and visit No. 8 Maryland on Monday night.

North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, Baylor and Tennessee round out the first 10.

Middle Tennessee entered at No. 25, the Blue Raiders’ first ranking since Nov. 16, 2009. Nebraska fell out.
