NEW YORK (AP) — Oregon remains No. 1 in The Associated Press women's college basketball poll.

The Ducks received 28 of 30 first-place votes from a national media panel Monday while Baylor claimed the other two. Oregon had a stunning exhibition win over the U.S. women's national team on Saturday, handing the Americans only their second loss ever to a college program.

All-America Sabrina Ionescu led the way with 30 points. The Ducks open their season Monday night against Northeastern.

Stanford, Connecticut and Texas A&M followed second-ranked Baylor in the women's AP Top 25. It's the first time the Aggies are ranked in the top five since they were fifth on Dec. 29, 2014.

South Carolina moved up to sixth after a road victory over then-No. 4 Maryland on Sunday. The Terrapins dropped to eighth. Oregon State was seventh, with Louisville and Mississippi State rounding out the top 10.

South Florida entered the poll at No. 25, replacing Minnesota, which fell out.
