Baylor win

The South Carolina women's basketball team won its  division in the Paradise Jam tournament in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgina Islands, with a victory over then No. 2 Baylor. Provided/USC

COLUMBIA — The South Carolina women fell one spot to No. 6 in the Associated Press women's Top 25 basketball poll released Monday despite winning their division in last weekend's Paradise Jam. 

The Gamecocks (8-1) lost to then-No. 18 Indiana but beat Washington State and then-No. 2 Baylor. It snapped a 36-game Baylor winning streak, including last year's national championship game and a Sweet 16 win over USC. 

Baylor fell to No. 7 and previously No. 1 Oregon fell to No. 3 after losing to Louisville. The Cardinals moved from eighth to second. 

The Gamecocks only have two games in the next two weeks as they break for exams. They will be at Temple on Saturday, then host Purdue on Dec. 15.

Michigan makes major move

Michigan tied a poll record by jumping from unranked to No. 4 on Monday in the men's AP Top 25. 

The Wolverines, after beating North Carolina and Gonzaga in the Battle 4 Atlantis, matched the 1989-90 Kansas team in going from unranked to the Top 5. Those are the two longest jumps in the 70-year history of the poll. 

Michigan gets another challenge right away. They will play the nation's new No. 1 team, Louisville, Tuesday. The Cardinals took the top spot after previously No. 1 Duke lost at home to Stephen F. Austin last week.
