UConn, Stanford now No. 2 and 3 in AP poll

The highly-anticipated showdown between UConn and Stanford, set it tip in a little more than five hours, went from being a matchup between the No. 4 and 5 teams in the Associated Press poll to being one between No. 2 and 3.

The new AP poll just came out and with the losses by previous No. 2 Notre Dame and No. 3 Tennessee, UConn and Stanford each moved up two spots with Notre Dame falling to fourth after its loss to top-ranked Baylor and Tennessee tumbled to sixth after losing to Virginia in overtime. Baylor received 39 of the 40 first-place votes with No. 5 Texas A&M getting the other No. 1 vote. For the sake of full disclosure, I am one of the voters. I did not drop Notre Dame out of No. 2 feeling like it was hard to penalize the Fighting Irish for a loss to the top-ranked team in the country. I did move Tennessee from No. 3 to No. 6 after the loss to the Cavaliers.
