LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The U of L women's basketball team already has already set a school mark for the most wins in a row to start a season and all-time (currently 19 and counting). Now they have achieved the highest ranking in school history. 

The Cards are a strong number two in this week's Associated Press poll after their 100-67 destruction of then-number two Notre Dame last Thursday. UConn is still number one.  The Cardinals were second on 30 of the 32 ballots.  UConn received all of the 32 first-place votes and then got a scare before staying unbeaten with a 75-71 victory at Texas Monday night.

U of L challenges the Huskies February 12th in Storrs, Connecticut.

Star Junior Asia Durr was named ESPNW and ACC Player of the Week for her 36-point effort in the win over Notre Dame.  Durr hit 8-of-10 three-point attempts. 

The Cardinals travel to Pittsburgh Thursday night bidding for a 20-0 start to the season.
