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

dana evans of louisville

This week should have been called the “upset” week. While Americans were off celebrating their Thanksgiving holiday weekend, women’s college basketball teams were participating in holiday tournaments in various destinations across the country. The tournaments led to some interesting results and it resulted in both the #1 and #2 ranked teams in the country being upset on the same day. Parity has arrived and that is great for the game. This means that this week’s rankings are going to look a bit different from what it usually looks like. There was some slight shakeup in the rankings this week, so it may not exactly look like past weeks. There were some deserving players who played well and stepped up when their teams needed them to.  My only wish was that some of the games were televised on ESPN so that more people could watch.

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 Dec. 1st. If you are new to the rankings or if you have questions, please read my FAQ page first. Click here for last week’s list.

Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings – Class by Class! Week 3

This week was a “slow” week, meaning teams that were supposed to win did, and only a few lost to some unranked teams. A handful of teams only played one game this week. As a result, the rankings are not that much different from last week. Some teams that did not play well earlier in the season did so this week and therefore there are some new names but for the most part, a majority of the names are the same.

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. 18th to Nov. 24th. Have questions on these rankings? Read the FAQ page. Click here  for last week’s rankings.

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

aliyah boston of south carolina

Women’s College Basketball is back in full swing and teams got underway last week. This is now my fourth year running these rankings and the same freshmen I ranked four years ago are now seniors! Time flies!

We had some upsets in the first week with some ranked teams falling to non ranked teams. We also saw how deep certain teams are early and how some teams have yet to play a single game. These rankings are going to look a whole lot different from the pre-season rankings just because other players stepped up in Week 1 and it will look different from week to week. As always, I ensure that these rankings are done fairly and accurately with representation from a large majority of competitive D1 women’s college basketball teams.

If you are new to these rankings and have questions on how I put these weekly ranking lists together, please read the Frequently Asked Questions page. Curious to see who was on the pre-season list? Click here for that list.
