  • Oklahoma women's basketball team landed 12th in The Associated Press' preseason women's basketball poll released Saturday.

    Oklahoma returns seven players, including its starting five, from a squad that finished second in the Big 12 Conference and with 13th consecutive NCAA tournament appearance. 

    All-Big 12 First Team members Aaryn Ellenberg and Whitney Hand and the Big 12's Sixth Man Sharane Campbell lead a cast bolstered by the addition of three highly-rated newcomers. These Sooners will face their first preseason-ranked opponent on their home court in December.

    Big 12 foe and reigning national champion Baylor was the unanimous vote for No. 1. The Sooners and Lady Bears meet twice in 2013 in nationally-televised games on Jan. 26 in Waco, and Feb. 25, in Norman.

    Connecticut, Duke, Stanford and Maryland rounded out the top five. Kentucky, Notre Dame, Penn State, Louisville and Georgia completed the top 10.
