AP Top 25 Women's Basketball Poll

The Associated Press women’s college basketball poll started on Nov. 25, 1976 with Delta State the first No. 1 team. The original poll was voted on by coaches and ranked only 20 teams before expanding to a Top 25 in the 1989-90 season. Philadelphia Inquirer writer Mel Greenberg started the poll and compiled it for the AP until it became a writers poll at the start of the 1994-95 season. The AP’s final poll is released right before the field for the NCAA Tournament is selected.
