USF coach Jose Fernandez's team is 15th in the latest Associated Press poll, the highest AP ranking in program history.

This is a case of the Mondays that Jose Fernandez probably wouldn't mind becoming contagious.

USF's veteran women's basketball coach began another work week learning senior All-America candidate Courtney Williams had been named American Athletic Conference Player of the Week after posting double-doubles (52 total points, 24 total rebounds) in wins against Tulane and East Carolina.

Around the same time, highly regarded NCAA women's tournament bracketologist Charlie Creme revealed he currently has the Bulls as a four-seed -- and host school -- in the Lexington, Ky., region.

Then, shortly after lunch, the Associated Press issued its latest women's poll, where USF (12-4, 5-1 AAC) moved up four spots to 15th. It's the highest ranking in program history.

No confirmation to reports that Fernandez was spotted purchasing Powerball tickets Monday evening.
