NCAA Basketball Power Rankings
Rank LW School
6 7
LSU Tigers (20-3)
Speaking of players who are making a big difference, Quianna Chaney has taken some heat off of Sylvia Folwes by knocking down eight three-pointers in the last three games. Since the start of SEC play, Chaney and guard Allison Hightower have improved their three-point shooting accuracy by nearly 10 percent.

Next three: 2/14 at Tennessee; 2/17 vs. Ole Miss; 2/21 vs. Kentucky
7 8
Stanford Cardinal (22-3)
All-America Candice Wiggins has been a tear, putting up 81 points in the last four games with 25 in each of the last two games. Last Saturday's performance against Oregon State marked the 11th time this season that Wiggins has scored at least 20.

Next three: 2/14 vs. Arizona; 2/16 vs. Arizona State; 2/23 at California
8 6
Baylor Bears (21-2)
When Baylor's post players don't score, it spells trouble. In a win over Texas Tech, Baylor's frontcourt trio of Rachel Allison, Danielle Wilson and Jessika Bradley combined for 39 points and 19 rebounds -- a far cry from the 15 points they had in a loss to Oklahoma State. The trio was outscored 29-18 by Stanford's frontline of Kayla Pederson and Jayne Appel in Baylor's only other loss.

Next three: 02/13 at Texas; 02/17 vs. Oklahoma; 02/23 at Iowa State
9 9
Duke Blue Devils (17-6)
If the Duke women looked a little pink on Sunday in their win over Wake Forest, it was because they were one of more than 900 schools participating in the WBCA's Think Pink week in an effort to raise awareness about breast cancer and money for N.C. State coach Kay Yow's fund. "It just amazes me that so many people would step forth," Yow told the Hartford Courant.

Next three: 2/13 at Clemson; 2/17 vs. Maryland; 2/22 at Virginia Tech
10 7
California Golden Bears (21-3)
It shouldn't come as a big surprise that California shut down Oregon the way it did. The Ducks, who managed just 34 points on Saturday, aren't the only ones finding it difficult to score against the Golden Bears, who are giving up just 52.8 points a game. Only two teams have scored more than 70 against California.

Next three:2/14 vs. Arizona State; 2/16 vs. Arizona; 2/23 vs. Stanford
