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.

The Sooners, like Texas, are up and down. They are in the rankings but after the loss to UCF in Orlando, I am guessing they won't be there much longer. Oklahoma earlier int he week beat a struggling Kansas State team, so while that was a good win, I can't say it was a great win.

Oklahoma is a team that seemed to start hot and has cooled down since. They were close to cracking the top 10 in the rankings until they lost two straight at home. Going forward the Sooners have a mix of easier opponents and opponents that out-match them. This team can be good and has shown they are god, but they have to win a couple of the big games going forward if they want to solidify their spot in the NCAA Tournament.
