Lady Bears Basketball to Begin Exhibition

Looking to improve on last year's NCAA birth, the Lady Bears Basketball team find themselves ranked in both major polls as they begin exhibition play Thursday, November 8th against the Houston Jaguars. The Lady Bears are ranked No. 14 in the Associated Press' Poll and No. 16 in the USA Today/ESPN Top 25 Coach's Poll.

The Houston Jaguars are comprised of former college players - one of which includes Tonia Harris Finley, a 2 year starter for the Bears in the mid 90s. The Jaguars have lost 4 games and won 2.

This year, women's basketball will be very competitive in the Big 12. With Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Iowa State, Colorado, and Baylor all being ranked in the Top 25, the conference title is up for grabs. With the conference stacking up like this, any Big 12 competitor has a shot at an NCAA bid.
