The UConn women's basketball team stays the unanimous No. 1 in The Associated Press poll after winning its only game of the week.

The Huskies routed UC Davis by 60 points Thursday and don't play again until Dec. 17 against No. 2 Duke because of exams. The Blue Devils beat Purdue and Oklahoma this past week. The top nine teams in the poll remain the same with Tennessee, Notre Dame, Kentucky, Stanford, Louisville, Maryland and Baylor following the Blue Devils.

South Carolina moved up two spots to No. 10, its best ranking since Feb. 10, 2002, when the Gamecocks were also 10th.

Colorado, Penn State, LSU, Oklahoma State and North Carolina were the next five. The Tar Heels moved up three spots. Georgia, Iowa State, Purdue, Nebraska and Oklahoma followed.

Iowa, California, Gonzaga, Texas A&M and Syracuse round out the Top 25.

No. 8 Maryland 105, Siena 49: Alyssa Thomas had 12 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists for her third career triple-double as No. 8 Maryland cruised to the win.

Lauren Mincy scored 21 points and Brene Moseley added 13 — season highs for both — to help the Terrapins (9-1) win their eighth straight.

Maryland had its highest scoring output of the season, and reached the 100-point mark for the second time in four games to begin a five-game homestand.

Shatori Walker-Kimbrough added 13 points as six Terps scored in double digits.

Brianna Logan scored 12 for the Saints (4-4), who kept it close for most of the first half before wearing down after the break.
