Womhoops Guru

Mel Greenberg covered college and professional women’s basketball for the Philadelphia Inquirer, where he worked for 40 plus years. Greenberg pioneered national coverage of the game, including the original Top 25 women's college poll. His knowledge has earned him nicknames such as "The Guru" and "The Godfather," as well as induction into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in 2007.

Guru's Tuesday Musings With AP Poll Notes

(Updated as promised to make bottom list more readable -- Guru)

By Mel Greenberg

Thoughts to ponder off this week's poll.

Others receiving votes is a category the Guru has never spent much time with, other than the immediate also-rans, but since Delaware and Hofstra claimed first-ever votes in the AP poll (glad they keep track of their history), there's this thought to ponder.

Both shools are in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), the same conference that has gone to Old Dominion in all 13 years of the Monarchs' membership. This is probably the first time that CAA schools got votes and none of the multiples was ODU.

Kristy Curry became the 23rd member of the "Doubles Club" with Texas Tech's return to the rankings. The new Raiders coach previously had a ranked team in Purdue. Last week's AP notes had the entire group (and no I don't have time to figure out the link right now -- just scroll back to last Tuesday :) )

Texas A&M, which made coach Gary Blair a "Triples Club" member last season, hit the Top 10 for the first time in the program's history.

Connecticut's Geno Auriemma has passed former Louisiana Tech coach Leon Barmore on the all-time poll appearance list. Barmore has a few extra numbers, but they are in the tandem category when he and Sonja Hogg shared head coaching duties. Of course if you combine the two ---.

That said, and the Guru wants to head to nearby Chinatown on the way home, here's the current readout of all-time poll appearances by coaches:
