College basketball rankings are streaming in with the USA Today/Coaches poll being released last week and then on Thursday the AP poll being released. It's a good time to follow college basketball in Kansas City as all three of the area teams are in the top 15. Expectations are certainly high this year.
It's Kansas State and not Kansas who takes the highest ranking of the three area teams. Mizzou pulls things up in the rear at No. 15.
There are no differences between the AP and Coaches poll for KSU, KU and Mizzou:
Kansas State: No. 3
Kansas: No. 7
Missouri: No. 15
Those will certainly change throughout the year as it appears the Big 12 teams will beat up on each other.
