Washington State has earned its first ranking ever in The Associated Press women's college basketball poll, entering at No. 25.

The Cougars knocked off then-No. 7 Arizona in overtime on Sunday. 

While Washington State was enjoying its first ranking, Stanford tightened its grip on the No. 1 spot in the poll. 

The Cardinal received 29 of the 30 first-place votes from a national media panel. 

They were followed by Louisville, North Carolina State, UConn and South Carolina. 

The Wolfpack received the other No. 1 vote.

On top of the women making history at WSU, freshman sensation Charlisse Leger-Walker was named Pac-12 freshman of the week for the fourth time in five weeks.
