Big 12 Conference Basketball Power Rankings - Week 9

Conference play began, so we are seeing the real teams emerge. Lots of movement this week.

1. Kansas Jayhawks

Overall Record:  18-0
Last Week's Record: 3-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 1 - No movement
What Matt Says: So when you're shooting 79.3% at the half on the road, things are going well.

2. Texas Longhorns

Overall Record:  14-3
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 2 - No movement
What Matt Says: Not one of those weeks that Texas will do much bragging about, but beating anyone on the road by 30 is an accomplishment.

3. Texas A&M Aggies

Overall Record:  16-1
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 3 - No movement
What Evan Says: Playing as well as anyone in the league/country. Were able to play uptempo ball and defeat Mizzou.

4. Colorado Buffaloes

Overall Record:  14-4
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 7 - Up three spots
What Evan Says: Nationally they are surprising everyone. To Big 12 enthusiasts they are playing where we thought they'd be playing.

5. Missouri Tigers

Overall Record:  16-3
Last Week's Record:  2-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 5 - No movement
What Evan Says: The OT loss to A&M can be overlooked, as they had the ball with game in hand. The K-State victory might now just go down as a footnote.

6. Nebraska Cornhuskers

Overall Record:  13-4
Last Week's Record: 0-2
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 9 - Up three spots
What Joe Says: This team is definitely better this year, looked like for awhile they were going to be the team to end streak at Allen Fieldhouse.

7. Iowa St. Cyclones

Overall Record:  14-4
Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 10 - Up three spots
What Joe Says: Pounded Baylor at home, maybe best story in Big 12 this year.

8. Oklahoma St. Cowboys

Overall Record:  13-4
Last Week's Results: 0-2
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 4 - Down four spots
What Joe Says: Win at CU would have been big. Middle of pack team in Big 12 that could surprise on some nights.

9. Baylor Bears

Overall Record:  12-5
Last Week's Record: 1-2
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 6 - Down three spots
What Matt Says: Panic button pressed. Not sure why Scott Drew insisted on playing zone as long as he did. Not sure the Bears are tournament-caliber team after that embarrassment in Waco against the Jayhawks.

10. Kansas St. Wildcats

Overall Record:  13-6
Last Week's Record: 1-2
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 8 - Down two spots
What Joe Says: Got a nice win in scrimmage vs Tech but then back to normal with butt whooping at Missouri. Could be a possible NIT team.

11. Oklahoma Sooners

Overall Record:  8-9
Last Week's Record: 0-2
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 11 - No movement
What Matt Says: Well, the Sooners lost two conference road games. But think optimistically: they get Texas Tech at home this week!

Overall Record:  8-10
Last Week's Record: 0-2
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 12 - No movement
