Once again, Texas Longhorns men’s basketball (10-1, 4-0) is ranked No. 4 in the latest AP Poll.
The Longhorns were ranked in the same position in last week’s AP Poll. Over the weekend, Texas topped the West Virginia Mountaineers in a Big 12 Conference showdown, in part thanks to Andrew Jones’ last-second three-point shot, ending the game 72-70. Jones also managed to score his thousandth career point as a Longhorn against the Mountaineers.
Remarkably, Jones’ career night was also highlighted by a personal accomplishment: the three-year anniversary of his cancer diagnosis, in which he’s now in remission.
The only Big 12 team currently ranked higher than the Longhorns are the No. 2 Baylor Bears.
The Kansas Jayhawks are also ranked No. 6 in this week’s AP Poll.
The Longhorns will not face either team until next month.
