NEW YORK -- UConn has finished No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll for the fifth straight year.
The Huskies (32-0) enter the NCAA tournament as the lone unbeaten team and went wire-to-wire as the unanimous top team. They received all 32 votes from the national media panel Monday.
It's the 15th time in school history that UConn is No. 1 in final poll of the season. The Huskies remained perfect, winning the American Athletic Conference championship on March 6.
Nine times when they ended as the top-ranked team, the Huskies went on to win the national championship, including 2013 through 2016.
Here are a few other tidbits from the Top 25:
CONFERENCE SUPREMECY: The Southeastern Conference reigned with seven teams in the final poll, led by Mississippi State. South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Missouri, Georgia and LSU joined the Bulldogs as ranked teams for most of the season. The Atlantic Coast Conference was next with five in the Top 25. The Pac-12 had four teams while the Big Ten, Big 12 and American each had two.
MID-MAJOR POWERS: Green Bay, Belmont and Mercer weren't part of the preseason poll, but the three mid-major programs all spent the last few weeks of the season ranked. All three won their conference tournaments.
