Predicting how many Big 12 teams will make the NCAA Women's Tournament

About a month away from the NCAA Women's Tournament, Kansas State stands alone as the only undefeated team in conference play, they seem like a lock for the tournament. So who else looks like they could have a shot at the big dance?

12-6, 6-2 Big 12. . . 461. . . 6. big 12 . .

The last team on this prediction list is Iowa State. The Cyclones are also a team that lost more non-conference games but has come into conference play and surprised people. Iowa State was picked to finish behind Oklahoma in the preseason Big 12 poll, so it's only fitting that they are also behind Oklahoma in the current Big 12 rankings.

The Cyclones are an interesting team. They have a middle-of-the-pack offense ranking No. 6 in the Big 12, but their defense is close to the bottom of the Big 12 rankings coming in at No. 12. With only losses so far, the Cyclones can make a run to make it to the tournament.

With two games against Kansas State and a game against Texas and West Virginia, Iowa State can make a case for making into the tournament, especially if they can take down either Texas or Kansas State.
