AUSTIN (KXAN) — With the Texas Longhorns women’s basketball team falling out of the Associated Press Top 25 rankings this week, it marks a dubious occasion for all NCAA programs in the Lone Star State.

The Longhorns went 1-1 this week and were dropped into the receiving votes category of the poll, leaving no state of Texas programs in the women’s poll for the first time in its 47-year history.

Wayland Baptist, Stephen F. Austin and Baylor were Texas representatives in the AP’s first women’s college basketball poll in 1976, and until this week, a team from Texas had been in every release.

The Longhorns dropped a 68-64 decision to Texas Tech on Jan. 18 but then rebounded to top Baylor 68-55 on Jan. 22 in Waco. Beating the Bears wasn’t enough to stay in the rankings, however.
