IOWA CITY (AP) -

Connecticut remains the unanimous No. 1 team in women's college basketball in The Associated Press poll.

The Huskies beat Ohio State by 21 points in their lone game of the week. Duke stays a unanimous second choice Monday after sweeping through the Paradise Jam in the Virgin Islands. The Blue Devils are followed by Tennessee, Notre Dame and Kentucky. The Wildcats moved up two spots after beating state rival Louisville on Sunday.

Stanford, Louisville, Maryland, Baylor and Penn State round out the first 10. Nebraska, North Carolina and Texas A&M dropped after losses. The Cornhuskers fell five spots to 15th, the Tar Heels seven places to 18th and the Aggies 11 slots to 23rd.

Syracuse and Iowa entered the poll for the first time this season at No. 22 and 25. DePaul and Michigan State are no longer ranked.
