The Lady Bears will face No. 24 Iowa State and 20th-ranked Oklahoma this week.

The Wildcats were followed by Stanford, California, Penn State, Tennessee and Maryland. None of the Top 10 teams changed as they went 18-0, winning by an average of 22.5 points.

Michigan State entered the poll at No. 25 while Kansas fell out.
