(AP) — The Lady Vols streak of 565 consecutive weeks in The Associated Press women’s basketball poll ended Monday as Tennessee fell out of the Top 25. The streak started Feb. 17, 1985.

Tennessee (16-11) had been teetering on the edge the past few weeks and finally dropped out after losing two of its three games last week. With the Lady Vols out, UConn now has the longest active streak. The Huskies, who remain No. 1 in the poll this week, have been ranked for 428 consecutive weeks. It would take them roughly seven more years to match Tennessee’s record.

This was UConn’s 200th week at No. 1.

The Huskies were followed by Notre Dame, South Carolina, Baylor and Ohio State.

Colorado State entered the Top 25 for the first time since 2002. The Rams have won 21 straight games.
