UConn's record streak of top five appearances in The Associated Press women's basketball poll is over.

The Huskies fell to sixth on Monday ending a run of 253 consecutive weeks as one of the first five teams in the Top 25.

That historic stretch dated back to Feb. 5, 2007. The longest current streak is now held by No. 1 South Carolina at 11. The Gamecocks had a hand in ending the Huskies' run by routing UConn last Monday night.
