            === Stanford moves to the top of women's hoops poll ===
 
 New  York,  NY (Sports Network) -  Stanford ended Baylor's winning streak last
 week  and  on Monday halted the  Lady Bears' lengthy  run as the No. 1 women's
 basketball team in the nation.
 
 The  Cardinal notched a 71-69 victory last Friday in Hawaii, stopping Baylor's
 42-game  winning streak,  and on Monday vaulted  from fourth to the top of the
 latest Associated Press poll.
 
 Stanford  earned  21 first-place  votes  and  a total  of  952  points from  a
 nationwide  media panel  to edge Connecticut for the top spot. UConn picked up
 17  No.  1 tallies  and 943 points  to remain second,  while Baylor dropped to
 third.
 
 Despite  Friday's narrow loss, the Lady Bears still garnered top consideration
 from one voter. Baylor had been the top-ranked team in the previous 21 polls.
 
 Duke  dropped  a spot  to fourth  and is  followed by  Notre Dame, Penn State,
 Louisville, Georgia, Kentucky and Maryland.
 
 The  second 10 consists of California, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Purdue, Texas,
 Ohio State, Vanderbilt, St. John's, UCLA and Tennessee. UCLA was unranked last
 week.
 
 Oklahoma  State, Kansas, Nebraska, Dayton and North Carolina are the last five
 teams ranked this week. Kansas, Dayton and North Carolina are all newcomers.
 
 Delaware, Texas A&M, Miami-Florida and Georgetown all dropped out.
