For the first time since January 2012, the Kansas State Wildcats’ women’s basketball team is nationally ranked in the Associated Press top-25 poll.
The updated rankings, released today, list K-State at No. 24 in the nation.
Baylor, West Virginia, Texas and Oklahoma are the other teams ranked from the Big 12. The Wildcats started the season 9-0 before losing to No. 1 Connecticut on Dec. 11. With the Huskies still undefeated and having beaten the No. 2 team twice this season, it appears the loss to them didn’t hurt the Wildcats, who bounced back and earned a win against Princeton Sunday afternoon.
The Wildcats are currently 10-1 this season.
The Wildcats have never been ranked No. 24, but were ranked No. 23 in 2012. They are 211-71 in games as a ranked team.
The Wildcats finish nonconference play against the University of Northern Iowa Panthers at 7 p.m. Thursday in Cedar Falls, Iowa. After that, they are scheduled to play No. 3 Baylor on Dec. 29 in Waco, Texas.
