Men’s basketball cracks AP Top 25
That ranking is the Bears’ highest since they were ranked 19th in February 1969. Last season, the men spent two weeks at No. 25; this marks the first time the Baylor men have ever been ranked in consecutive seasons.
The Lady Bears, meanwhile, are also 6-1 and ranked 10th in the nation; their lone loss came Saturday, a one-point defeat in the championship game of the Paradise Jam Tournament.
The men will look to defend their ranking Saturday at Washington State; tip-off is set for 10:30 p.m. CT, and the game will be televised nationally on Fox Sports Net. The women will host St. John’s Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Ferrell Center.
Sic ’em, Baylor basketball!
