RCW: A Look Back 3.25

As the Kansas women’s basketball team heads to the Big 12 Championship in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, this weekend, let’s take A Look Back at the first women’s team to earn a Big 12 trophy.

Twenty years ago, in 1997 – the first season in the newly expanded conference – the team went 14-2 in Big 12 play to claim the regular-season title. The roster featured four future 1,000-point-plus career scorers, three future WNBA players, four women who would go on to play professionally overseas and one All-American in Tamecka Dixon. The team finished the season 25-6 overall and with a No. 11 final ranking by the Associated Press.
