2017-18 Women’s College Basketball Week 12 TV and Announcer Schedule

For the week of Jan. 22, the UConn Huskies remained the unanimous No. 1 choice in the poll from the 32-member national media panel.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs moved up to No. 2 for its best ranking ever. They are still unbeaten on the season after an impressive 19-point win at Tennessee on Sunday, Jan. 21. It’s the highest-ranked road win ever for the team, besting a victory over No. 9 Florida on Feb. 18, 2001.

Baylor, Louisville (which suffered their first loss of the season, falling to Florida State on Jan. 21) and Notre Dame follow the Bulldogs in the Top 5.

No. 16 Michigan was in the poll for a 12th consecutive week, the longest run in school history, topping a 11-week stretch from 2000-2002. The ranking is also the best since the Wolverines were 12th on Dec. 24, 2001.

After more than seven years out of the rankings, the TCU Horned Frogs entered The Associated Press women’s basketball poll at No. 24. They were last ranked on Nov. 22, 2010, and are 13-5 this season, including wins over then-No. 7 Texas and No. 15 West Virginia.

The following is the Week 12 women’s college basketball regular season schedule featuring the Top 25 teams (according to the weekly Associated Press poll), including dates, start times, TV networks and scheduled announcers. All times Eastern.
