Xavier women 11th in coaches poll

Musketeers miss chance to enter AP Top 10

        The Xavier women's basketball team moved up one spot to 11th in the USAToday-ESPN coaches poll this week — the Musketeers' highest rank ever.

        But Xavier (28-2) got lost in the shuffle in The Associated Press media poll. Vanderbilt (21-9) and Texas Tech (22-5) jumped over the Musketeers, who were in position to break into the top 10 but remained at No. 12.

        Vanderbilt jumped five places to 10th after beating then-No. 1 Tennessee in the semifinals of the Southeastern Conference tournament.

        Texas Tech jumped three places to 11th after beating last week's No. 10, Iowa State, in its last regular-season game.

        The coaches poll has Texas Tech 12th and Vanderbilt 13th.

        Notre Dame returned to No. 1 in both polls after Tennessee lost for the first time in two months.

        The Irish (28-1) meet No. 2 Connecticut (27-2) in the championship game of the Big East tournament tonight at UConn's Gampel Pavilion.
