KNOXVILLE (WRCB) -- A bounce-back win at Georgia Tech Sunday helped Tennessee women's basketball cling to its spot in the Associated Press Top 25.
The Lady Vols (1-1) dropped four spots to No. 24 in the latest poll, which was released Monday. UT opened the season with a stunning loss at Chattanooga Friday in Holly Warlick's first game as head coach, but rounded back into form in a double-digit win in Atlanta two days later.
The Lady Mocs (1-0), who will next play Wednesday at Belmont, received 10 votes in the latest poll. UTC checks in ahead of the likes of Rutgers, LSU and Michigan State.
Georgia Tech (0-1), which had been ranked No. 22, dropped from the poll.
Kentucky is the highest-ranked SEC team at No. 6, with Georgia (No. 10), Vanderbilt (No. 13) and Texas A&M (No. 16) also in the top 25.
Baylor is again the unanimous No. 1 choice. The Lady Bears received all the first-place votes Monday after routing Lamar. The top five teams remained unchanged with UConn, Duke, Stanford and Maryland following Baylor.
The Lady Bears have a busy week ahead. They host No. 6 Kentucky on Tuesday before heading to Hawaii to play in the Rainbow Wahine Classic. Baylor will face the fourth-ranked Cardinal on Friday in a rematch of a national semifinal game from last season.
Texas jumped into the rankings at No. 19 after beating then-No. 14 St. John's. The Red Storm fell to 20th. Georgetown also entered the poll at No. 25 after knocking off then-No. 11 Delaware. The Blue Hens, who fell to 17th, are missing star Elena Delle Donne, who is dealing with symptoms of Lyme disease.
