The University of Colorado women's basketball team moved up two spots to No. 23 in the Associated Press poll released Monday.

Linda Lappe's squad received 156 votes -- up from 99 last week -- to tie its highest ranking since also reaching No. 23 on Jan. 7, 2008.

The Buffs are 10-0 and one of only seven remaining unbeaten teams in Division I. All seven undefeated teams are in the Top 25, including top-ranked Stanford. The Cardinal maintained its hold on the No. 1 ranking for the sixth straight week, matching the team's longest run in the top spot.

The Cardinal had 24 first-place votes Monday, while Connecticut received 14. Baylor got the other two.

UConn will visit Stanford on Saturday, trying to snap the Cardinal's 82-game home winning streak. Stanford, which beat South Carolina and Tennessee on the road last week, was No. 1 for six weeks in 1996.

Duke and Notre Dame round out the first five.

Colorado's next game is Saturday at the Coors Events Center against New Mexico at 2:30 p.m. That game wraps up the Buffs' non-conference schedule. The Buffs open Pac-12 play at home against No. 1 Stanford at 8 p.m. on Jan. 4.
