Texas Women Move Four Spots in AP Top 25, While Men Hold Steady

The Texas women defeated Texas A&M in a Big 12-SEC Showdown, which helped them move up in the rankings

The Texas Longhorns men’s and women’s basketball teams remained in their respective AP Top 25 polls, released on Monday.

The Longhorn men (6-1) came in at No. 7, while the women (6-1) came in at No. 11.

The men, who were also No. 7 last week, enjoyed a 2-0 week.

Texas (6-1) had a 2-0 week, defeating Sam Houston, 73-57, and UT-Rio Grande Valley, 88-58. In the latter game, Christian Bishop led the Longhorns with 17 points. Texas has just one game this week, a Thursday showdown at No. 23 Seton Hall in the Big 12-Big East Battle.

After Seton Hall, the men return home Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Dec. 14. Then, the Longhorns face their last big test of non-conference action when they meet Stanford at the Pac-12 Coast-to-Coast Challenge in Las Vegas on Dec. 19.

The Longhorn men were one of four Big 12 teams in the Top 25, including No. 2 Baylor, No. 8 Kansas and No. 17 Iowa State.
