NEW YORK (AP) South Carolina's run in the top 10 is over.

The Gamecocks fell out of the first 10 teams in the AP women's basketball poll on Monday after being ranked that high for the past 89 consecutive weeks dating back to Jan. 6, 2014. It was the third longest active streak behind UConn and Notre Dame.

"What we've been able to do - we had a roster full of talented players that grew, creating that buzz around here and around the country. I don't think it's our last stop - our last stop being in the top 10 probably this year," coach Dawn Staley said after the team lost to Maryland on Sunday. "We are going to coach our kids up and try to get back in there. Not to say that's what we're shooting for. But we are going to get better. We're going to get more disciplined. We are going to give people a much better game than we gave Maryland tonight."
