Tennessee remains No. 1 in coaches' poll
Tennessee is still No. 1.
The Lady Vols remained atop the coaches' and Associated Press polls, receiving 28 first-place votes in the ESPN/USA Today coaches' poll and all 50 first-places votes in the AP poll. Tennessee started its season Sunday with a 76-56 victory over Chattanooga and has a showdown with Oklahoma on Thursday in Tampa, Fla., at the site of this season's Final Four.
Connecticut received two first-place votes and remained No. 2, while Maryland, which was fourth last week, was third after wins over Princeton and then-No. 6 Oklahoma.
LSU, which received the other first-place vote, moved up a spot to fourth. Stanford, which edged then-No. 3 Rutgers 60-58 on Sunday when preseason All-American Candice Wiggins hit two free throws with one-tenth of a second left, improved three spots to fifth.
North Carolina, Rutgers, Oklahoma, Duke and Georgia round out the Top 10.
Texas A&M remained 11th, followed by George Washington, Baylor, Arizona State and California. Ohio State, Vanderbilt, Michigan State, Florida State and West Virginia round out the top 20.
Louisville, Texas, Purdue, NC State and Notre Dame held the final five spots.
Pittsburgh was the only team to fall out of the poll after losing to Penn State in the finals of the WBCA Classic on Sunday.
