Big 12 Hoops Conference Power Poll

It is still Kansas' world, and we are all just living in it. After a few close games, KU remains as the class of the conference after dismantling Texas in Austin. K-State is again second, but the Move of the Week belongs to Texas A&M who would receive a first round conference tourney bye if the season ended today.

Mizzou also sees itself in the top third of the conference, after winning in Boulder and home vs Iowa St.

Baylor comes in fifth and is one of those teams with so much talent that they can beat anyone on any day. Insdie and outside. Teams can't nap when facing the Bears.

Speaking of napping, someone's got to wake up Texas. The 'Horns are in such a slump now. They can't shoot and just seem worn out during every game.  What was that in the first half vs KU? A 13 minute drought?  WAKE UP!

The bottom half of the conference is sub .500 in Big 12 play.  Oklahoma St has shown that it'll struggle when James Anderson either isn't performing or is in foul trouble.

OU can beat Texas but then lose at home to Tech? Explain that to me.

Texas Tech is moving up, after sweeping the Oklahoma schools this past week.

Iowa St is another with great players, who just can;t seem to get it together at all. Just riddle me this... what Big 12 school wouldn't want either Craig Brackins or Marquis Gilstrap on their squad? Answer. None. So why can't they win? Should Cyclones Greg McDermott be on the hot seats? Why not?

Now tell me if this makes sense? You take the top team in the conference to OT in your own building, only to lose, then get essentially shut out your following game against Mizzou. Huh?

Then there is Nebraska. The write up here is just so they don't feel left out.
