With the Big 12 women’s basketball season coming down to its final few weeks, the conference championship race is one of the closest in over a decade.
No. 6 Iowa State is currently sitting in first place with a 10-2 conference record. The Cyclones won their only Big 12 regular-season crown in 2000, and have a huge week ahead. They are at Texas on Wednesday, and have a home contest on Saturday against Oklahoma, which is currently a game behind in the standings.
“It’s a really big week,” Iowa State coach Bill Fennelly said. “Going to Texas, we haven’t played them very well lately and Oklahoma is playing at a very high level. Our league has been very good this year.”
