West Virginia cracks women’s Top 25 after win over Mississippi State

West Virginia made its way into the Associated Press women’s basketball Top 25 following Sunday’s upset win at then-No. 10 Mississippi State.

The Mountaineers (6-1) are ranked 22nd in this week’s poll, making them the only previously unranked team to jump into the Top 25 this week.

West Virginia and No. 6 Baylor are currently the only two ranked teams in the Big 12.

Sunday’s 71-65 win at Mississippi State was the first non-conference Top-10 win in program history. The Bulldogs have reached the Elite Eight in each of the past three seasons.

The Mountaineers are idle until next Sunday, when they face Norfolk State at the Charleston Civic Center.
