LSU enters poll for first time in 4 years; UConn still No. 1
NEW YORK - LSU is back in the women's AP Top 25 for the first time in four years while UConn and Mississippi State continue to lead the poll.
The Tigers came back into The Associated Press women's basketball poll on Monday for the first time since Feb. 17, 2014, entering at No. 24. LSU has won six of its past seven games to move into third in a very competitive SEC. That includes wins over Tennessee, Georgia and Texas A&M, who are all ranked.
LSU's next game is at No. 7 South Carolina on Thursday.
While LSU returned to the poll, UConn remains the unanimous No. 1 team. The Huskies (26-0) received all 32 first-place votes from a national media panel. They were followed by Mississippi State, Baylor, Louisville and Notre Dame. The Cardinals lost to UConn by 11 points last Monday night.
Texas, South Carolina, Oregon, Florida State and UCLA round out the first 10 teams in the poll.
