After losing to the Cards 78-69, the Huskies dropped to fifth on Monday in The Associated Press women’s basketball poll, their lowest ranking since Feb. 12, 2007. UConn moved into the top five a week earlier and has remained there every poll since — a span of 232 consecutive weeks. That is more than double the next-longest streak, held by Louisiana Tech.  After UConn’s run, the next longest active streak of top-five appearances belongs to Louisville with 32. Notre Dame is right behind with 30. Oregon has seven and Baylor five.
