UConn's Caroline Ducharme (33) is in trouble in the fourth quarter during the Huskies' 69-64 loss to the Louisville Cardinals.

UConn's record 16-year run in the top 10 is over.

The Huskies fell four spots to No. 11 in The Associated Press women's college basketball poll a day after losing to Louisville.

UConn had been ranked among the first 10 teams in the poll for 313 straight weeks dating to March 2005, when the team was also 11th.

No. 10 Baylor now has the longest active streak, with 136 consecutive weeks.

South Carolina remained the unanimous top choice, receiving all 29 first-place votes from a national media panel.

The Gamecocks will face No. 2 Stanford on Tuesday in the second showdown of No. 1 vs. No. 2 this season.

Meanwhile, the UConn men’s basketball team dropped off the AP Top 25 list, after ranking third last week.
