MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Winners of each of its first three games, the West Virginia women’s basketball team cracked the Associated Press Poll at No. 25 released Monday.

The Mountaineers received 68 points to make their season debut in the Top 25.

Baylor, at No. 2, is the only other Big 12 Conference member in the poll.

West Virginia (3-0) has posted lopsided wins over St. Francis (Pa.), Presbyterian and Radford to start the season.
