Big 12 Conference Basketball Power Rankings - Week 13

For as many interesting finishes as there were, not much movement this week.

1. Texas Longhorns

Overall Record:  22-3
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 1 - No Movement
What Matt Says: The Longhorns are now boast a secure lead over Kansas for the Big 12 with a very winnable schedule ahead. Think most likely slip-up is at Baylor.

2. Kansas Jayhawks

Overall Record:  24-2
Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 2 - No Movement
What Matt Says: Kansas got blown out of the building by K-State. Bad body language, cheap-shot fouls, and poor execution on both ends highlighted the loss. Should be a wake-up call for a team that was coasting.

T3. Baylor Bears

Overall Record:  16-8
Last Week's Record: 1-1
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 3 - No Movement
What Matt Says: The Bears need to start running their offense with Perry Jones III as an equally valuable target as LaceDarius Dunn. Jones is special.

T3. Missouri Tigers

Overall Record:  19-6
Last Week's Record:  1-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 4 - Up one spot
What Evan Says: Mizzou enters the easiest stretch of their Big 12 season. And we should see a road win in the mix.

5. Texas A&M Aggies

Overall Record:  19-5
Last Week's Record: 2-0
Last Week's Ranking/Movement: 5 - No movement
