South Carolina fell two spots to No. 10 in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 women’s poll.

The Gamecocks also lost their status as the top-ranked SEC team in the poll. Kentucky, which USC beat on Jan. 9, checked in at No. 9 this week.

USC is off until Sunday, when it travels to No. 16 Vanderbilt.
