MSU women rise to No. 20 in AP poll; Tenn. drops out

News staff and wire services
The Michigan State women's basketball team moved up five spots to No. 20 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 Poll.

One week after nearly dropping out of the Associated Press Top 25 Poll, the Michigan State women’s basketball team bounced back.

The Spartans (20-7), who picked up a 70-67 win over Rutgers on Thursday and a 114-106 victory over Minnesota on Sunday, moved up five spots to No. 20 in Monday’s new rankings.

Not much changed at the top as Connecticut (26-0) maintained its No. 1 ranking for the 200th straight week, while Notre Dame (25-1), South Carolina (25-1), Baylor (27-1) and Ohio State (23-4) all held firm to round out the top five.

Perhaps the biggest news is that Tennessee’s 31-year run in the top 25 came to an end, snapping a 565-week streak that started on Feb. 17, 1985. The Lady Vols (16-11) dropped out after losing two of their three games last week.

UConn now holds the longest active ranked streak at 428 consecutive weeks.
