Nos. 1, 8, 9 and 10 continue to be pretty straight-forward. Between them, though, any team is clearly capable of beating any other squad.
With that, here are the Big 12 women’s basketball power rankings for this week.
1. Baylor (24-1, 14-0 Big 12)
Last week: 1
Baylor has won 22 straight games and remains the nation’s No. 1-ranked team in both the AP and coaches’ polls.
2. Iowa State (18-6, 9-5)
Last week: 2
Iowa State had its four-game win streak snapped Sunday in a home loss to West Virginia, but the Cyclones also earned an important win at Oklahoma last week.
3. Texas Tech (19-7, 9-5)
Last week: 4
Tech lost at Baylor and beat Texas at home in the last week. The Raiders get an entire week off before playing next Sunday at Kansas.
4. Oklahoma (18-7, 8-5)
Last week: 3
The Sooners lost back-to-back games for the first time this season with Thursday’s home loss to Iowa State and Sunday’s defeat at Kansas. OU hosts Kansas State before next Saturday’s important Bedlam rematch in Stillwater.
5. Oklahoma State (18-6, 7-6)
Last week: 6
After being routed by Oklahoma in Norman, the Cowgirls earned an impressive win at West Virginia, and then easily handled Kansas State at home. OSU plays next Wednesday at TCU, then hosts OU next Saturday.
