    ISU moves up to #18 in the coaches poll

    NCAA College Basketball Polls, College Basketball Rankings, NCAA Basketball Polls - ESPN

    The Big 12 has the #4, #8, #12, #16, #17, #18, and #25

    I would say that the Big 12 is OK at Women's basketball.

    That is crazy. Is there a max on the number of teams one conference can get into the tourney?

    Re: ISU moves up to #18 in the coaches poll

    This team is going to have to fall big time for us to only be a 8 seed in the NCAA. I'm still concerned about having Lacy doing all the work, but the the others seem to coming along slowly. We really need to have Bolte step up. She is going to be the team leader next year and we need her to start playing like it.

    The women's team could beat the mean's team.

    The next game against Oklahoma is HUGE for us. The following 3 games are VERY winnable. It would be great to get the one against Oklahoma and then roll to a 7-2 record.

    Agreed, and the great part is a win is a huge boost, but a loss doesn't hurt us that much. After OU we should win our next 3 and then we get Baylor at home, 2 days after they play @OU, and we have a full week of rest leading into the game. I like our chances in that game given the situation. If we win either of OU/BU we very well could end up 13-3 in conference play, which would tie BF's best conference mark at ISU.

    But first, let's protect our home court against OU.

    That is insane with how young this team is. How good is Allison Lacey?

    I hope you're right - I'm just not sure it's in her DNA.

    I think we will lose 2 over the next 6 and than we will probably lose to OKstate. I would say 10-6 or 11-5 is probably more realistic. Still, with this young team, that is just unbelievable. I can't wait for two years from now when these freshman have couple years experience and we just landed the best recruit in ISU history. I'm smelling another Big 12 title in the near future.

    Unless sophomores step into that roll, who else would it be. Bolte will be the only senior on next years team. Next year could be more of a drop than we expect.

    I think it will end up being this year's freshman. They are all being forced to play big roles right out of the gate and I think at least one of them would be ready to shoulder that role if Bolte is not up to the task.

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Let's take this one game at a time. This team is young, and has won a big game, but there is going to be one or two that we might lose and shouldn't. Also, saying OU and BU as both wins means you've been drinking the Koolaid. BU has been losing because their team leader is out. Different story when Jones is in the line-up. And I have watched OU play a couple games, and they are scary scary scary fast like OU teams of past prior to the Paris twins. I am optimistic for a winning record in the Big 12, we have a lot of big games to play. MU upset Baylor, we have to play at Kansas, and K-State.

    Not saying don't be optimistic, let's just be a little cautious and take it week by week.

    Is it ridiculous to see almost all of the conference in the tourney then? 7 teams in the top 25 would be a given. Are teams like KU and K-State going to get a look as well?
