Lexie Hull of Stanford University

The women’s college basketball season is in full swing and we have new players to watch for, upcoming teams and new story lines to keep track of this season. This is the third year of tracking and ranking college players and it is been a labor of love and hard work that goes with these rankings.

If you have any other questions that are not on there, you can always leave them in the comments or contact me via Twitter. My handle is @whoopsblogger.

Preseason Women’s College Basketball Player Rankings – Class by Class!

Asia Durr

It is that time of year once again! The start of the new women’s college basketball season is upon us with multiple story lines and players to watch for. This also means the women’s college basketball players rankings are back! This is the third year of compiling these rankings and they take a lot of time, energy and effort. It is a pleasure to do them every year, but keep in mind that these rankings can change from now until March. I have received tons of feedback over the years on these rankings and it is great to see how they have been received from the women’s basketball community. Thank you all for the constant support on these rankings. I sincerely appreciate it.

The preseason rankings are combined of a combination of what happened last year and what is most likely predicted this season from the players. Remember, this list can change and new players can be added OR subtracted from the list. These rankings can change and are updated weekly. These rankings are designed to help gauge who really are the top players in women’s college basketball and if you have any questions or comments, feel free to read the FAQ regarding these rankings. Any additional questions or queries, leave them in the comments and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Listed below are the preseason rankings for the top 36 seniors, the top 27 juniors, the top 18 sophomores and the top 9 freshmen for 2018-2019. Curious to see who made last year’s preseason rankings? Click here for that list.

Women’s College Basketball Final Overall Player Rankings for 2017/2018 – Class by Class!

March has arrived and it is glorious. NCAA March Madness is truly a special time of the year. The time has now come to unveil the FINAL OVERALL Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings for the 2017/2018 season. From November to March, we have seen some incredible performances by seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen for their respective colleges.

For 16 weeks, I took the best of the best women’s college basketball players and put them on my week to week lists. I looked at over 45 schools per week for every week. I tried to be fair and non biased in my rankings. For those that don’t know, this is NOT my day job. I continued doing these rankings because I thought we were missing these type of lists in women’s college basketball.  It would take me over 5/6 hours every week to come up with these rankings.  I just didn’t look at Power 5 conferences only,  I took into consideration all of the other small conferences and gave those players a shout out when I could as well.

If you are curious on who made last year’s final overall rankings list, click here. If this is your first time reading these rankings or you still have questions, then check my FAQ page. All your answers are there and if you are still not satisfied, reply in my comments section or send me a tweet on Twitter. My handle is @whoopsblogger.

To make this final list, players had to be on my rankings list for at least 8 weeks or more during the season.

Listed below are the top seniors, the top juniors, the top sophomores and the top freshmen for 2017/2018.

*Note: I am fully aware that this final overall rankings list for this season seems different from last season. I know that there aren’t 36 seniors, 27 juniors, 18 sophomores and 9 freshmen. But I had to make it fair and that is what is happened to the list. Players who made the list seven weeks are listed on the just missed section. Players who made the list six weeks or less (the cut off was three weeks) are listed in the honourable mention section.

Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings – Class by Class! Week 16

This is it. We have reached the final week before conference tournaments begin and NCAA March Madness starts. This was the week in many outstanding college basketball seniors had their last games in which they got to say goodbye to their schools and the fans. Since this is such a deep senior class, they had many memorable moments over their four years of college. Good luck moving forward seniors, and good luck to those who will be lucky enough to play in the WNBA this summer.

I will have the FINAL overall women’s college basketball rankings next week released on Monday, March 5th. This will be the final week in which the rankings are week to week based.

Listed below are the top 36 seniors, the top 27 juniors, the top 18 sophomores and the top 9 freshmen for the week of February 19th to February 25th. The previous weeks rankings can be found here. Have any questions? Check my FAQ page.
