South Carolina remains No. 1 in AP women's basketball poll

South Carolina remains No. 1 in The Associated Press poll for the 12th straight week, setting up a showdown with No. 2 Connecticut on Monday night.

It will be the 54th meeting between the top two schools in the poll, with the No. 1 team holding a 33-20 lead.

The Huskies are followed by Baylor, Notre Dame and Maryland. Tennessee, Florida State, Oregon State, Louisville and Kentucky round out the first 10.

Undefeated Princeton moves up to No. 16. South Florida enters at No. 25 for its first poll appearance in program history.

Stanford fell to 19th, the Cardinal's worst ranking since being left out of the final poll of the 2000-01 season. They lost back-to-back conference games for the first time since getting swept on a Los Angeles trip in January 2008 and now have three league losses for the first time since 2005-06.

Texas fell out of the Top 25.
