The Huskies have won 99 consecutive games and remain the unanimous choice atop the poll Monday. They face sixth-ranked South Carolina on Monday night.

Maryland, Mississippi State, Florida State and Baylor round out the first five. The Seminoles and Lady Bears are tied for fourth. Baylor dropped two spots after losing to Texas last Monday night.
