Colorado Moves Up Three Spots To No. 11 in AP Poll

BOULDER – Colorado moved up three spots to No. 11 in the fourth regular season Associated Press Women’s Basketball Top 25 Poll released on Monday.

Colorado received 480 points, up from 365 last week. Monday’s showing is Colorado’s highest ranking since coming in at No. 11 for the second straight week on Feb. 2, 2004.

The Buffaloes have been ranked in 19 consecutive AP polls, matching their longest run since appearing in all 19 polls of the 2003-04 season.  Colorado has a long history of rankings in the AP poll, dating back to the 1980-81 season. This ranking marks the 177th time Colorado has appeared in the AP poll, trailing only Stanford, USC and UCLA among Pac-12 schools.

Numerous Top 25 upsets last week allowed the Buffaloes to leap up three spots, and they received help from Pac-12 rivals as the league picked up some quality nonconference wins. Unranked Washington State upset No. 10 Nebraska, 76-72, in Lincoln, on Nov. 30. Arizona State turned heads in a tournament in Cancun, Mexico, by knocking off No. 11 North Carolina, 94-81, in overtime. The Sun Devils appeared in the “teams receiving votes” category this week.

The USA Today Sports Coaches Poll will be released on Tuesday. Colorado was No. 19 in that poll last week.

Colorado currently has four ranked teams on its schedule, three of which were preseason No. 10 picks. Stanford is No 6, Louisville is No. 7, California is No. 21 and Iowa, whose only loss is to Colorado, debuted in this week’s AP poll at No. 25.

Colorado, which has won 30-straight nonconference regular season games, will put that streak on the line by traveling to Wyoming on Wednesday, Dec. 4, at 7 p.m. at the Arena-Auditorium in Laramie.
