Big 12 Has KU 5th, Iowa State 7th, and OU 8th in Men’s Coaches Basketball Poll; Baylor and West Virginia also in Top 25

The string of consecutive Men’s Big 12 Conference Basketball Championships for the Kansas Jayhawks might continue in 2015-16, but if you ask head coach Bill Self, he won’t let his players think it will be easy.  Iowa State and Oklahoma have the horses to win it, and the balance of the league will guarantee the men from Lawrence won’t take any contest, road or in Allen Field House, for granted.  The new season will showcase one of the power basketball conferences in the country, if not the best.  Today’s pre-season poll shows the Big 12 with the three aforementioned teams in the Top 8 of the poll.






Kansas has been rated 5th, Iowa State 7th, and Oklahoma 8th in the Coaches Poll that came out today.  Baylor garnered a 21st place and West Virginia 23th in the rankings, giving the Big 12 five spots in the 25 top ranked schools.  Texas received votes that would place them in the 34 position.
