Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings – Class by Class! Week 4

Khayla Pointer of LSU

It was an interesting week for sure as conferences faced off in challenges with very intriguing results. Always fun to have conferences face off and teams get a chance to see they face off against another conference opponent. This was also a week in which there were tons of upsets, some losses for the AP ranked Top 25 teams and parity has never been higher in women’s college basketball. This week’s rankings are very different because of just that. More players from smaller conferences made the cut, while several players in the top conferences did not, either because of the loss, they did not play this week or just were not efficient this past week. Remember, I look at weekly performances, not just one game from the week. All of them. I also place special emphasis on the teams the teams face and how that player responded in the tough games.

With that, 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. 29th to Dec. 5th. You can view the previous week here. Questions? The FAQ page can be found here.

*NEW addition to the Rankings – Ever curious to see how players developed over the years on these rankings? How some players either fell off or become better after college in the WNBA? Well, I’ve decided to list ALL of my previous years rankings based on the week so you can see it for yourself and decide!
