AP Poll Update: Bears Climb to No. 11

Big 12 still well represented

NCAA Basketball: Arkansas at Baylor Raymond Carlin III-USA TODAY Sports

The Baylor Bears are on an impressive 6-game win streak that has now helped them climb 6 spots up to No. 11 in the newest AP Top 25.

Around the Big 12, 60% of the conference is currently in the Top 15. Kansas State dropped a couple of spot to No. 7. Kansas, after beating Kentucky over the weekend, is up to No. 8. The Texas Longhorns split their games last week to remain at No. 10. Iowa State and TCU sit at No. 13 and No. 15 respectively. West Virginia is also receiving some votes this week after winning both of their games last week. Future Big 12 member, Houston, is in the No. 3 spot.

No other conference has more than 2 teams in the Top 15.

All 5 teams that Baylor has lost to (Virginia, Marquette, Iowa State, Kansas State, and TCU) are in the Top 15 right now. Baylor also has wins against 3 Top 15 teams (UCLA, Kansas, and Gonzaga).

There will be 4 meetings between ranked Big 12 teams this week, starting with tonight’s matchup with the Longhorns.
