Fresh off a 73-72 loss to Notre Dame Saturday at Gampel Pavilion, the Huskies dropped two spots to No. 3 in The Associated Press national poll this week. They still received two first-place votes.
Baylor rose one spot to No. 1, receiving 32 first-place votes. Notre Dame received also two first-place votes and rose three spots to No. 2. Fourth-ranked Duke earned the remaining four first-place votes despite dropping one spot in the rankings.
It is only the second time in a record 158 weeks at No. 1 that UConn has spent just one week at the top. The Huskies were voted No. 1 Feb. 23, 2004. However, they lost 59-56 at Villanova five days later and dropped to No. 4 March 1, 2004.
