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

The Bearcats came out of the woodwork and surprised a lot of people. They are a scrappy team that has found ways to win, whether it is in comeback fashion, keeping games close, or completely dominating.

Now, this team probably won't make the NCAA Tournament unless they shock everyone and win the Big 12 Championship, but they could definitely create chaos. That is what this team is, it is chaotic. They have upset teams that should have beaten them and won the games they felt they should have won.

I don't know that this is a team I would want to play in the Big 12 Tournament because they are a wildcard. This week however, they did lose to West Virginia in Morgantown but came up with the big win against Texas Tech to knock them out of the top spot in the conference.
