BOULDER ó Fresh off its first top-10 victory in more than10 years, the University of Colorado debuted at No. 25 in the Associated Press Women’s Basketball Top 25 poll, released Monday.

Colorado received 99 votes to make its first appearance in the AP poll since a similar No. 25 ranking on Jan. 14, 2008. The Buffaloes are 9-0 after defeating then-No. 8 ranked Louisville 70-66 on Dec. 14. CU’s last win over a top-10 opponent was a 62-59 win over No. 5 Stanford in the 2002 NCAA Sweet 16.

The Buffaloes have a long history of rankings in the AP poll, dating back to the 1980-81 season. This week’s ranking marks the 159th time Colorado has appeared in the AP poll, trailing only Stanford, USC and UCLA among Pac-12 Conference schools. CU had received one vote in last week’s AP poll.

The USA Today Sports Coaches poll will be released on Tuesday. The Buffaloes haven’t been ranked in that poll since April 2004. CU received votes from the coaches poll during the squad’s four-week AP run in 2007-08, but never reached the top 25.

Colorado will take to the floor as a ranked team for the first time since January 2008 by hosting Utah Valley on Saturday, Dec. 22, at 1:30 p.m. at the Coors Events Center.
