    They have Texas at #14 which seems reasonable. Not too sure they looked at their own rankings as Audrey wasn’t even in their top 100.

    14. Texas Longhorns
    Previous: 15

    The torn ACL suffered by Lashann Higgs last November scarred what looked like a promising season in Austin. Her return after being granted a medical redshirt is a huge boost for a team that has talent but is loaded with questions. Higgs and All-Big 12 point guard Sug Sutton make up a productive backcourt, but other players on the roster must live up to expectations if the Longhorns are to challenge Baylor. Joyner Holmes has one more season to be the player she showed she could be as a freshman. Charli Collier and Audrey Warren came to Austin a year ago highly regarded but were merely role players.


    UConn, Louisville, NC State up in Way-Too-Early Preseason Top 25

    Pretty fair assessment for us at this point. Surprised that South Carolina checks in at #7. Expect to see Notre Dame climb as they get experience. Strange not seeing Tennessee ranked. Guess we will find out how good we are when Stanford comes to town.

    Where did you expect them to be ranked?

    Considering they have some new, young faces coming in I figured they would be 10-15 range. Don't get me wrong, I think they are gonna be real good. Just figured they would need some time to grow.

    Makes sense. Charlie Creme did have us at #9 in the initial too early rankings and provided that Herbert Harrigan withdrawing her name from the portal was a reason for the bump. Nonetheless I will take #7. It’s a lucky number:yes:. Ready for the season today!
