    No love for Oklahoma in either poll. Cherry Cola lost her charm?

    Kansas gets 14 votes in espn poll?? Did some of the voters think it was the mens poll??
    Are they really the 4th best team in the league?

    A peeve of mine that is becoming increasingly more irritating over time:
    "cute" names meant to demean or degrade another person. Unfortunately, one can see it used on every board.

    Cherry Cola is a far nicer nickname than the Sea Hag up in Waco.

    ESPN has UT at #12. They don't mention the injuries to Joyner or Sedona so I wonder how deep they actually looked at each team currently. Baylor at #4, WVU #20.

    2017-18: 28-7; lost in Sweet 16
    Notable returners: Lashann Higgs (12.8 PPG, 2.7 APG); Jatarie White (10.8 PPG, 5.9 RPG); Joyner Holmes (6.8 PPG, 6.0 RPG)

    The talent Karen Aston is accumulating in Austin gets better each season, and the addition of top-five recruits 6-5 Charli Collier and 6-7 Sedona Prince just adds to the résumé. Throw in 6-4 senior Jatarie White and 6-3 Joyner Holmes, both also former McDonald's All Americans, and the Longhorns are loaded in the frontcourt. Collier is a favorite for national freshman of the year and has the potential to dominate immediately. White is solid and experienced. But Holmes, coming off a lost sophomore season that began with a first semester suspension, is an X factor. Her talent and versatility could make her one of the best players in the Big 12. A bounce-back season from Holmes, who played 25 games last season, would help balance the graduation losses of Ariel Atkins (14.9 PPG) and Brooke McCarty (13.6 PPG), a guard duo that was the Longhorns' foundation the past two seasons. Even more will be expected of Lashann Higgs, while Texas A&M graduate transfer Danni Williams (14.7 PPG with the Aggies last season) should provide much-needed perimeter shooting. Still, the biggest question for Aston will be how well junior Sug Sutton performs as McCarty's replacement at point guard.
