A few days before Iowa State will try to win their third Big 12 Tournament title in four years, the Cyclones have been ranked 23rd in the country. Steve Prohm and company had a tough week playing some of the Big 12’s best in Oklahoma State and West Virginia. When the dust settled, they ended up in a three-way tie for second place and with the 4-seed in the Big 12 Tournament.
As for the rest of the conference, Kansas continues to have a hold on the #1 ranking in the country. Baylor is ranked 9th and West Virginia fell to 11th in the rankings. Meanwhile, Oklahoma State received 23 votes after their two losses this past week.
