UConn back atop AP poll

With UConn taking down previous No. 1 Stanford in record fashion, the Huskies predictably moved into the No. 1 spot in the Associated Press poll for the first time since the end of the 2010-11 season.

UConn extended its own record by being ranked No. 1 for the 158th week and the Huskies have a 295-13 record as the nation's No. 1 team.

Not surprisingly, the prospect of moving into the No. 1 slot was greeted with little more than an indifferent shrug by UConn coach Geno Auriemma following the Stanford game.

"Stanford beat Baylor and Stanford became No. 1. We beat Stanford and now people are going to say that we are No. 1. I think Baylor is probably sitting at home saying we are the real No. 1 and we are going to prove it every time we play. I don;t think this time of the year it really matters one way or the other. I didn't see one player in our locker room jumping up and down saying we are No. 1. When they have been there for so many times, a lot of those guys it doesn't faze them."
