Women’s College Basketball Player Rankings – Class by Class! Week 1

charli collier, texas

The first week of the women’s college basketball season has now ended and it has been very interesting. This is not going to be a normal year and many games have been cancelled or postponed this week. Which means a lot of players have yet to make their debut or have not played many games in the opening week. You will probably see more players in here that haven’t been on the rankings list for a while or if, ever. These players got the opportunity due to the stated reasons above. It will make these rankings a bit different from what you have seen in the past years from myself.

Listed below are the top 36 seniors, the top 27 juniors, the top 18 sophomores and the top 9 freshmen for the week of Nov. 25th to Nov. 29th. If you would like to view the pre season’s rankings list, you may do so here. If you have any questions, please read the FAQ page.
