South Carolina remains atop the AP Top 25 women’s basketball poll, despite a last-second 70-69 overtime loss to unranked Missouri.

The top five remain unchanged, with the only difference being that both Louisville (5) and Arizona (3) received first place votes. It’s the first time since week three that South Carolina did not receive every first place vote.

Despite the upset over the nation’s top-ranked team, Missouri remains outside of the top 25, having received 53 votes.

Indiana is up two spots to No. 6 after taking down then-No. 6 Maryland on Sunday in overtime. Maryland, meanwhile, sits at No. 10.

Texas enters the top 10 for the first time this season at No. 9.

Baylor was the only team to fall outside of the top 10 this week, dropping to No. 14 after a loss to Kansas State who, like Missouri, remains unranked. The drop ends a run of 137 consecutive weeks in the top 10.

Louisville now sits as the active leader, having spent 81 consecutive polls inside the top 10.

LSU is the biggest climber of the week, jumping all the way up to No. 13 from No. 19 a week ago.
