The Kansas State women’s basketball team remains the No. 25 team in America after the AP rankings were updated Monday.
The Wildcats are one of five Big 12 teams currently ranked. The others are No. 22 Oklahoma, No. 18 West Virginia, No. 16 Texas and No. 2 Baylor.
K-State has played three of the four other ranked conference teams since the new year, going 1-2. K-State is not scheduled to play the other team, Texas, for the first time until February.
The Wildcats escaped the opening of their Big 12 gantlet. In their first four games of conference play, they faced three ranked teams, two of them on the road. They lost both road games, but went 2-0 at home, including a dominating win over then No. 12 West Virginia.
Freshman forward Eternati Willock has been one of the strong contributors early this season, averaging 6.7 points per game. In Saturday’s win over Texas Tech, Willock led all scorers with 13 points. She also had eight rebounds in her 26 minutes of play.
Willock is the first Canadian player in program history.
The Wildcats (12-4) next face the Kansas Jayhawks (6-9) at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Bramlage Coliseum.
