Baylor remains the unanimous No. 1 choice in The Associated Press women's college basketball poll while St. John's rejoins the rankings.

The Lady Bears received all the first-place votes Monday for the 12th straight week after beating Oklahoma State and Texas Tech to clinch the Big 12 regular-season title. Baylor is the lone remaining unbeaten team and plays Texas and Kansas this week.

St. John's is No. 20 after ending Connecticut's 99-game home winning streak Saturday. The Red Storm were ranked in the preseason poll but lost to St. Bonaventure the first week.

Stanford and Notre Dame move up a spot while the Huskies fall to fourth. Miami advances to fifth, followed by ACC rivals Maryland and Duke. Ohio State, Delaware and Tennessee round out the first 10.

Gonzaga re-enters the rankings at No. 25 while South Carolina and BYU fall out.
