Rori Harmon was tabbed as the Big 12 preseason player of the year and Madison Booker was the preseason freshman of the year. DeYona Gaston was also named to the All-Big 12 preseason team.

The team returns the bulk of its scoring and rebounding from last year and made big additions in the offseason with transfer Tionna Herron from Kentucky, along with freshmen Booker and Abbie Boutilier.
