Colorado Moves Up To No. 18 In USA Today Sports Coaches Poll

The University of Colorado moved up one spot to No. 18, in the USA Today Sports Women’s Basketball Coaches Top 25 poll released on Tuesday.

 

Colorado, 24-5 overall and 13-5 in the Pac-12 Conference, received a season-high 234 points, up from last week’s total of 182. The Buffaloes have been in the coaches’ poll for eight-straight weeks and nine overall this season. This week’s ranking is CU’s highest in the coaches’ poll since coming in at No. 16 the week of March 15, 2004.

 

All five of Colorado’s losses have been to ranked teams, including two each to Stanford and California ranked No. 7 or better at the time. Stanford and California both climbed one to No. 4 and No. 5 respectively, while UCLA leaped up three to No. 13. The Buffaloes do have one top 10 win on their resume, a 70-66 win over then-No. 8 Louisville on Dec. 14. The Cardinals are currently ranked No. 15.

This week’s ranking marks the 160th time Colorado has appeared in the coaches’ poll dating back to the 1988-89 campaign.

Colorado moved up one spot to a season-best No. 18 in the Associated Press Women’s Basketball Top 25 poll released Monday. The ranking is CU’s highest in the AP Poll since coming in at No. 17 in the final poll of the 2003-04 season (March 15, 2004). For the second-straight week CU’s coaches’ ranking has matched that of the AP poll.

 

Colorado is the No. 4 seed in the 2013 Pac-12 Tournament, March 7-10, at KeyArena in Seattle. The Buffaloes will have a first round bye and play the winner of No. 5 Washington and No. 12 Oregon on Friday, March 8, at 9:30 p.m. MST.
