BOULDER – The University of Colorado moved up two spots to No. 23 in the USA Today Sports Women’s Basketball Coaches poll released on Tuesday.

Colorado, 15-2 overall and 4-2 in the Pac-12 Conference, received a season-high 113 points, up from 67 last week when the Buffaloes reentered the poll for the second time this season at No. 25. Colorado’s No. 23 spot is its highest in the coaches’ poll since coming in at No. 16 in the March 15, 2004 poll.

On Monday the Buffaloes moved up one spot to No. 20, tied with Oklahoma, in the Associated Press Women’s Basketball Top 25 poll. The Buffaloes have resided in the AP poll for the last six weeks, reaching as high as No. 20 twice; this week and on Dec. 31. CU’s six week run in the AP poll is its longest since appearing in all 19 polls of the 2003-04 season. The 279 points received this week in the AP poll is a season high for the Buffaloes.

The Buffaloes have a long history of rankings in the AP poll, dating back to the 1980-81 season. This week’s ranking marks the 164th time Colorado has appeared in the AP poll, trailing only Stanford, USC and UCLA among Pac-12 schools. This week’s ranking marks the 154th †time Colorado has appeared in the coaches’ poll dating back to the 1988-89 campaign.

Colorado will continue Pac-12 play by traveling to the Bay Area and looking to avenge its only two losses on the season. The Buffaloes will play No. 7 California on Friday, Jan. 25, at 9 p.m. MT and will face No. 6 Stanford on Sunday, Jan. 27, at 5 p.m. MT. Both contests will be televised nationally on the Pac-12 Network.
