Stanford dropped one spot to No. 6 in The Associated Press' women's basketball poll, one day after the Cardinal's 67-55 loss at home to Cal, which remained at No. 7 nationally.
Kentucky took over the No. 5 spot from Stanford, gaining the Wildcats' best ranking in nearly 30 years.
The Cardinal had split with its Bay Area rival, beating Cal 62-53 on Tuesday. Sunday's loss to the Golden Bears ended Stanford 81-game conference win streak.
