USA - Top two stay clear of the changes


But while there was no change at the top, there was plenty throughout the rest of the top 25 as the poll was released on Tuesday.

No. 1 Tennessee trounced Old Dominion 83-51 on Wednesday, led by Team USA prospect Angie Bjorklund and senior international Candace Parker, to improve to 7-0 on the season. The Lady Vols received 29 of 31 first-place votes in the poll and collected 772 points overall.

Second-ranked Connecticut are also 7-0 after their 75-45 win over Virginia on Wednesday night, a game in which Brittany Hunter scored 14 points. The Huskies got one of the two remaining first-place votes and had 744 points.

North Carolina's 102-42 demolition of Wofford on Sunday helped lift the Tar Heels (10-1) one place to third in the poll, followed by Stanford (7-1) and Maryland (13-1), both of which climbed one place.

Maryland received the final first-place vote after recording three wins - over Middle Tennessee State, Northern Iowa, Temple - in a busy week.

Rutgers (7-2) fell to sixth having lost to No. 15 Duke on Thursday before rebounding to beat Army and No. 12 California over the weekend.

Georgia (9-0) is seventh, followed by Louisiana State (6-2), Oklahoma (6-2) and Baylor (6-0).

Next are Texas A&M (8-1), California (8-2), West Virginia (8-1), Auburn (9-0) and Duke (7-3).

DePaul (7-0) are 16th, ahead of Notre Dame (8-1) and Ohio State (6-2), who each collected 237 points to tie for 17th place.

Arizona State (5-3) are 19th while Vanderbilt (8-3) drop three places to 20th after losing 62-51 to Colorado at the weekend.

Michigan State (7-2), George Washington (7-3), Texas (7-2), Oklahoma State (8-0), and Wyoming (8-1) complete the poll. Oklahoma State were previously unranked.

North Carolina State dropped out of the poll after losing to both Xavier and East Carolina in the last week.
