Kansas Baseball Moves Back Into Top 25

March 15, 2010


Following the team’s series victory at previously unbeaten Louisiana State, the Kansas baseball team finds itself ranked as high as No. 19 in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper and Rivals.com polls. This marks the third week this season that KU has been ranked in the Top 25 in at least one national poll, and its highest ranking since 2003.

Kansas is also ranked No. 27 in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers’ Association poll, and is receiving votes in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches’ poll.

The Jayhawks have won six of their last seven games, including a series victory at defending national champion LSU, which was ranked No. 1 in three of last week’s Top 25 polls. KU is 11-4 overall, including 6-3 away from Hoglund Ballpark.

Three other Big 12 teams are part of the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll this week. Texas remained at No. 6 after a four-game sweep of Iowa; Oklahoma moved up two spots to No. 14 after winning three games at the Whataburger College Classic; Texas A&M moved up to No. 28 after taking two of three from Washington State.

Kansas returns to action Tuesday, opening a two-game midweek series with Tulane at 6 p.m. The game can be heard via internet broadcast at www.kuathletics.com.
