Big 12 Basketball Power Rankings: Kansas State falls again, a familiar No. 1 ranking

Kansas State has lost four games straight while Houston had their winning streak snapped. Kansas is suddenly back at the top of the Big 12 standings. Time to see how the power rankings will shake out this week.

All is right in the world for Kansas fans. The Jayhawks have somehow found their way to the top of the Big 12...again. While it looked like this year we might actually get the Big 12 Championship instead of the Bill Self Invitational, the Jayhawks reminded us that they still run this conference.

I could sit here and say again that the Big 12 is beating up on each other, but everyone already knows that. However, teams that seemed in it are now out of it and teams that seem out are now in. The standings are constantly changing every week and it is very hard to keep up with. So with the standings changing, so do the power rankings, and this week, we have another new team at number one.

Here is a look at the current Big 12 standings up to this point. The rankings are as of Monday, February 5 before the new AP Top 25 rankings were released.
