NEW YORK (AP) UConn survived one of the toughest tests of its winning streak to remain No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll.

The Huskies narrowly edged Tulane on Saturday, five days after beating No. 6 South Carolina for their 100th consecutive victory. Next up for UConn on Wednesday is Temple, which earned its first ranking since March 13, 2006, entering the poll Monday at No. 23.

Maryland, Mississippi State, Baylor and Notre Dame follow UConn.
