Young Adds Another Big 12 Weekly Honor

Young Adds Another Big 12 Weekly Honor

Monday, the Sooners were ranked No. 4 in the latest Associated Press poll, their highest spot since late in the 2016 regular season when they were No. 3 before slipping a bit before the NCAA Tournament.

But Texas Tech lost to No. 9 Oklahoma 75-65 on Tuesday, creating a four-way tie atop the Big 12 with West Virginia, Oklahoma and Kansas.

Also Monday, OU guard Trae Young was named Big 12 Player of the Week for the sixth time in 10 tries this week. "I know we're going to be a frog again at some point - it's the Big 12 - But I want to be a prince one more day". The Sooners (14-2) moved up to No. 4 from No. 9 and is the highest-ranked team in the Big 12, which has five teams in the rankings.

Kansas and West Virginia play tonight in Morgantown in a top-10 match-up.

TCU, losers of three out of four including both games last week - both on the road - remained in the poll at No. 24. The ACC features, 2 Virginia, 5 Duke, 15 North Carolina, 20 Clemson and 25 Miami.

SpaceX pushes back Falcon Heavy rocket engine test to Tuesday
As for what the Falcon Heavy is, well, it's fair to say it's a jaw-dropping rocket of extreme proportions. Elon Musk also has warned that, as it has a big size and equipped with 27 boosters, it could blow up.

The Cardinals moved up the one spot after routing then-No. Young averaged 35.0 points, 8.0 assists, 6.5 rebounds, 2.5 steaks and 1.0 blocks while shooting.440 from the field and.500 from 3-point range. Louisville has never been this high before since first getting ranked in 2006.

Mississippi State, Baylor and Notre Dame follow the Cardinals, who were second on 30 of the 32 ballots.

The Big 12 can stake a claim as the nation's best conference.

Michigan State (16-3, 4-2 Big Ten) dropped to No. 4 after a loss to Ohio State on January 7, and will likely see another poll tumble after losing 82-72 to rival Michigan and needing overtime to beat Rutgers last week.
