Jim Foster has become the first coach to lead four schools into The Associated Press women's poll, with Chattanooga entering the rankings at No. 25 on Monday.

Foster guided Saint Joseph's, Vanderbilt and Ohio State to the rankings before coming to Chattanooga in 2013. It's the Mocs first appearance in the poll since 1984 when they were ranked for four weeks. Chattanooga hosts Samford on Monday night.

South Carolina remains No. 1 for the 10th straight week. The Gamecocks play No. 12 Texas A&M on Monday night.

South Carolina is followed by Connecticut, Baylor, Notre Dame and Maryland. Tennessee, Oregon State, Louisville, Florida State and Kentucky round out the first 10. The Seminoles jumped eight spots this week after beating the Cardinals and Wake Forest.

Oklahoma also entered the rankings for the first time this season at No. 24. Minnesota and Western Kentucky fell out.
