Connecticut took over No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll after routing Stanford over the weekend.
Coach Geno Auriemma's team had 37 first-place votes Monday, while second-ranked Baylor got the other three. The Huskies last held the top spot at the end of the 2010-11 season.
Duke moved up to third while Stanford, which held the top place for six weeks after beating Baylor, fell to fourth. Notre Dame was fifth. The Huskies, who beat Stanford 61-35 on Saturday to end the Cardinal's 82-game home winning streak, will host the Irish on Saturday.
Notre Dame is followed by Kentucky, California, Maryland, Penn State and Georgia. The Lady Bulldogs dropped four places after losing their first game of the season to Illinois.
Dayton dropped seven spots to No. 22 after losing its first game to Bowling Green.
For the third straight week Duke is the runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press' Top 25, and for the first time in 16 years Minnesota is in the top 10.
The Blue Devils (12-0) received all but two first-place votes. The next five teams — Michigan, Arizona, Louisville, Indiana and Kansas — held their places from last week. Syracuse, Ohio State, Minnesota and Gonzaga rounded out the top 10.
Michigan (13-0) was No. 1 on two ballots for the second straight week. Minnesota is in the top 10 for the first time since it was third in the final poll of 1996-97.
New Mexico, which won at undefeated Cincinnati, returns to the rankings at No. 20 after being out for one week. The Lobos replace UNLV, which dropped out after losing at North Carolina.
