UConn women’s basketball team falls out of top 10 in AP poll for first time since 2005


For the first time since 2005, the UConn women’s basketball team is not in the top 10 of the AP Top 25 poll. Connecticut is ranked at No. 11 in the rankings that came out Monday.

UConn, 6-3, had the longest active top 10 streak with 313 consecutive polls — a streak that went back to March 7, 2005. The team was ranked No. 11 in March of 2005 as well. Now No. 10 Baylor has the current title of most consecutive polls in the top 10 with 136 appearances in a row.

The lower ranking comes after UConn lost to the Louisville Cardinals, 69-64. The loss dropped the Huskies four spots from No. 7 to out of the top 10. None of this has been helped by Paige Bueckers’ absence. The UConn star is out for at least two months with a fractured left leg and a meniscus tear in that knee.

Here is a look at the current top 10:

1. South Carolina

2. Stanford 

3. Louisville 

4. Arizona 

5. NC State 

6. Maryland 

7. Tennessee 

8. Indiana 

9. Michigan 

10. Baylor 

The last time the Huskies were left off this list, Tom Brady only had three Super Bowl rings and Steve Nash was the NBA MVP. Geno Auriemma’s team will try to start a new streak next week.
