It didn’t take long for UConn women’s basketball to move up the rankings in the Associated Press poll.
Most of this is due to the Huskies’ work in the first 10 days of the regular season. UConn, which started the season at No. 6, used victories over top-10 opponents Texas and North Carolina State to jump to No. 3, just 11 points behind second-placed Stanford. Reigning national champion South Carolina, who defeated the Cardinal in overtime on Sunday, is the unanimous No. 1.
But the Huskies (3-0) have also seen the Longhorns, who started 3rd, lose back-to-back games in Battle 4 Atlantis and drop 16 places after their loss at the Gampel Pavilion. Iowa, which started at No. 4, lost in the state of Kansas. And Tennessee, which started at No. 5, could drop out of the top 25 overall next week after falling six spots and 12 spots at No. 23.
