Big 12 Basketball Power Rankings - Week 9

Iowa State was the big mover this week after wins vs Texas and A&M. The bottom three remained the same, though Tech is slowly inching its way out of the cellar... maybe because other teams aren't performing more than Tech actually improving.

1. Baylor Bears

Overall Record: 15-0 (2-0 conference)
Last Week's Record: 1-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement:1, same
What Nathan Says: Second most talented team in college basketball in my mind. K-State's gonna give them all they can handle tonight.

2. Kansas Jayhawks

Overall Record: 12-3 (2-0)
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 3, up one spot
What Nathan Says: Travis Releford: get to know the name if you haven't already.

3. Missouri Tigers

Overall Record: 14-1 (1-1)
Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 2, down one spot
What Evan Says: Road games are tough, but shooting 32.7% from the field at K-State is inexcusable. Another tough roadie at ISU tomorrow before a pair of home games.

4. Kansas St. Wildcats

Overall Record: 12-2 (1-1)
Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 4, same
What Evan Says: Bounced back nicely after getting demolished in Lawrence. Their schedule doesn't get any easier tonight hosting Baylor before traveling to Norman... We'll know the real K-State after Saturday.

5. Iowa St. Cyclones

Overall Record: 12-3 (2-0)
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 7, up two spots
What Nathan Says: They were in the rankings' doghouse not too long ago. A win vs Mizzou would cement their return to relevancy.

6. Texas Longhorns

Overall Record: 11-4 (1-1)
Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 5, down one spot
What E. Carnes Says: Texas shot just 30% in Saturday's victory over OK State. After facing A&M, the Longhorns hit the road for Mizzou and K-State — where 30% definitely won't cut it.

7. Oklahoma Sooners

Overall Record: 10-5 (0-3)
Last Week's Record: 0-3
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 6, down one spot
What Evan Says: Admittedly I am upset at OU's play. They were my underdog darlings of the year... then they lose three straight to open conference play. Looks like I'm shopping for a new bandwagon to hop on...

8. Texas A&M Aggies

Overall Record: 9-5 (0-2)
Last Week's Record: 0-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 8, same
What E. Carnes Says: What is happening in College Station? The Aggies were playing better before the return of Khris Middleton.

9. Oklahoma St. Cowboys

Overall Record: 9-7 (2-1)
Last Week's Results: 2-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 9, same
What Evan Says: The win in Bedlam was a great boost heading into a run of @Baylor, @ISU, vs K-State, vs. Mizzou. They must win half those games to stay relevant in the conference.

10. Texas Tech Red Raiders

Overall Record: 7-7 (0-2)
Last Week's Record: 0-2
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 10, same
What E. Carnes Says:The Red Raiders are looking better every game. They held their own in their loss to Baylor, only trailing by one point at the half.
