UConn no longer #1, Lady Vols remain fifth

(UNDATED) -- UConn's run at No. 1 is over.

The Huskies' NCAA-record 90-game winning streak ended Thursday night with a loss to Stanford. Their nearly three-year hold on the top ranking ended Monday when they were overtaken by Baylor and dropped to No. 2 in The Associated Press poll. Connecticut had had been the top team for a record 51 straight weeks, beginning Feb. 18, 2008.

Baylor is No. 1 for the first time. The Lady Bears next play on Saturday when they host No. 17 Iowa State in their Big 12 opener.

Duke, Stanford and Tennessee round out the first five. The Cardinal moved up five places after routing then-No. 4 Xavier and beating UConn.
