LSU's next game is at No. 7 South Carolina on Thursday.

While LSU returned to the poll, UConn remains the unanimous No. 1 team. The Huskies (26-0) received all 32 first-place votes from a national media panel. They were followed by Mississippi State, Baylor, Louisville and Notre Dame. The Cardinals lost to UConn by 11 points last Monday night.
