Upsets among top ten teams led to shifts in the Hoopfeed Poll this week. Previous No. 2 Baylor suffered an 85-79 home loss at the hands of Texas Monday night. The Longhorns snapped a 14-game losing streak to the Bears and moved up four spots in the poll to end up at No. 8. Baylor fell three spots to sit at No. 5.

Undefeated Connecticut remained in the top position followed by three teams that moved up a place each: Maryland, Mississippi State and Florida State.

Oregon State climbed back into the top 10 to No. 9 after a week with victories over Arizona State and Arizona.

UCLA beat Stanford Monday night at Maples Pavilion.

UCLA climbed two spots to No. 11 after dropping previous No. 7 Stanford at Maples Pavilion Monday night. It was the first victory for the Bruins at Stanford since 1999. The Cardinal fell five spots to No. 12.

Other poll notes:

  • Louisville also plummeted five spots to land at No. 14. The Cardinals lost to NC State last week and fell to Notre Dame on Monday.
  • South Florida dropped to No. 22 after a week that included a loss to unranked Memphis.
  • Michigan and Tennessee re-entered the poll at No. 21 and No. 25, respectively. Michigan is on a four-game winning streak and beat Illinois and Iowa last week.
  • Tennessee stunned No. 6 South Carolina last week and also beat LSU. However, the Lady Vols fell to Georgia in double overtime Sunday.
  • Other teams that received votes: California, Texas A&M, Green Bay, Drake, Temple, Elon, Kentucky
  • Green Bay and West Virginia dropped out of the poll.
