Stanford Is The New No. 1 In Women’s Basketball Poll

(November 19, 2012)—Stanford, which ended the Lady Bears’ 42-game winning streak Friday, is the new No. 1 team in the nation, barely edging Connecticut for the top spot in The Associated Press women's basketball poll Monday.

The Cardinal jumps from fourth after beating former No. 1 Baylor 71-69 Friday night.

Baylor, which was first in the previous 21 polls, falls to No. 3 in this week’s poll.

Stanford received 21 first place votes, while Connecticut got 17.

Baylor got the other one.

It's the Cardinal's first time at No. 1 since the final poll of the 2005 season.

Duke was No. 4 and Notre Dame was No. 5.

The Blue Devils were the last team to jump from the fourth spot to No. 1.

They did it in 2003 after beating then-No. 1 UConn by a point.
