Celebration over Baylor. Source: (Huskers.com)
Coming off a nice win over then thirteenth-ranked Baylor at home, the Husker women's basketball team moves up to #21 in the rankings.

The women have a lighter load ahead of them as the remainder of the Big 12 conference schedule includes Kansas Sate, Colorado, Texas Tech (at home), Mizzou, Iowa State, Oklahoma State, concluding with Colorado at home. Among these teams, Texas Tech has the highest Big 12 standing at sixth in the conference.

Among the remaining teams, Texas Tech has the highest Big 12 ranking at sixth. Nebraska is in second place in the conference behind Oklahoma, and tied with Texas A&M. Oklahoma's remaining schedule includes both Baylor and Texas at home. Texas A&M's remaining schedule includes Oklahoma and Texas at home, with a road trip to Baylor.

Bottom line - the Husker women have a decent shot at a regular season Big 12 title and a decent seed in the NCAA Tourney. If they're going to make a great run, they first need to take care of business at Kansas State this Wednesday night.
