Women’s College Basketball Final Overall Player Rankings for 2018/2019 – Class by Class!

March has arrived and it is my favourite month due to the NCAA Tournament. March Madness is truly a special time and holds many dear memories. It is now time to unveil the FINAL OVERALL Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings for the 2018/2019 season. From November to March, there have been special moments and incredible performances from seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen.

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 48 schools per week for every week. I tried my best to make the ratings fair and include a wide variety of big and small conferences. These rankings can take quite a bit of time to put together as they require a ton of time and attention.

I have been compiling these rankings for three years now and if you would like to check out the 2017/2018 edition, you may do so here. If you would like to view the 2016/2017 edition, you can click here. If you have questions or this is the first time reading these rankings, please read the FAQ page first.

To make the final list, players had to be on the rankings list for five or more weeks in the season.
