Stanford passes first real test, remains atop women’s Top 25

NEW YORK (AP) — Stanford faced its first real test of the season and passed to remain the top team in The Associated Press women’s college basketball poll. The Cardinal beat then-No. 10 UCLA 61-49, pulling away late, in the only game between ranked opponents last week. Stanford again received 26 first-place votes from a 30-member national media panel. While Stanford stayed on top, there was a little movement among the next few teams. Louisville remained No. 2 while North Carolina State moved up to third, edging UConn by a point in the poll. South Carolina stayed fifth. Arkansas switched places with UCLA to move into the top 10 for the first time since January 2003.
