CU Buffs women’s basketball moves into Top 25 – The Denver Post

A hot start has led to some national attention for the Colorado women’s basketball team.

On Monday, the Buffaloes vaulted into the Associated Press Top 25 rankings for the first time in nearly five years, landing at No. 25.

This is the first time the Buffs (8-0) have been ranked since sitting at No. 20 in the Dec. 26, 2016, poll. That year, the Buffs were ranked in five consecutive weeks before falling out of the rankings after the Dec. 26 poll.

CU will visit Southern Utah on Tuesday night, seeking its second 9-0 start in the last three years. The Buffs opened at 12-0 in 2019-20.

The Buffs received votes last week for the first time this year. In this week’s poll, the Buffs received 52 points, edging Florida Gulf Coast (51) for the No. 25 spot.

South Carolina remained a unanimous No. 1, while the CU is one of four Pac-12 teams in the top 25, along with Stanford (No. 4), Arizona (No. 6) and Oregon State (No. 23). Oregon, which was No. 18 last week, dropped out of the rankings and is second among others receiving votes (48 points). UCLA and Washington State also received votes.
