2020 WNBA Mock Draft Version 1.0

lauren cox baylor university dallas wings.

The 2020 WNBA season is on thanks to a new WNBA CBA. This means that it is time to start thinking about the upcoming season and free agency. This also means that the WNBA Draft is now three months away and it is now time to start preparing the WNBA Mock Drafts.

This 2020 WNBA Draft senior class is not as deep as last year’s senior class, therefore I added some possible juniors who could declare for this year’s draft in April. I will have three more versions of this mock draft which will be updated monthly. The final WNBA Mock Draft will be posted about a week or some days before the actual WNBA Draft takes place.

I have also included several WNBA Mock Drafts other outlets have posted so that if you haven’t read them yet or want to compare the mock drafts you may do so.

ROUND ONE

  1. Sabrina Ionescu – PG – Oregon – New York Liberty

The New York Liberty are entering into a new phase of rebuilding with a new ownership group and a new coach. What better way for the Liberty to start fresh with a #1 pick and select the best player from this class. Sabrina Ionescu has turned heads in women’s college basketball and will look to help the Liberty in May. Sabrina Ionescu is a smart player and she is a leader when she is on the floor.

2. Lauren Cox – F/C – Baylor – Dallas Wings

Lauren Cox is a steady forward who was instrumental in Baylor’s run to the championship last season and will look to help the Baylor Lady Bears defend their title come March/April. Lauren Cox can shoot from three, she can defend inside and she does not need to play a ton of minutes for the Dallas Wings. She can help the Wings with her interior defence and passing ability. Not only that, she’s a local player. That always helps with ticket sales!

3. Chennedy Carter** – PG/SG – Texas A&M – Indiana Fever

The Indiana Fever are also trying to rebuild and Chennedy Carter (one of the first possible early junior players) can help immediately. Her game is meant for the pro level. She can shoot, she can score and she can provide the Indiana Fever with some highlight reels. More than that, she can help invigorate the Fever and bring them back to prominence.

4. Satou Sabally** – SF/PF – Oregon – Atlanta Dream

The Atlanta Dream did not have a great season last year and will look to rebound again this season and could use some help on their front line. Satou Sabally (the second junior player who could possibly declare early) can give the Atlanta Dream size, shooting ability as well as the ability to switch onto defenders. She is a versatile small forward who gets better every year.

5. Te’a Cooper – SG – Baylor – Phoenix Mercury

Te’a Cooper has risen quite a bit and has proved herself with Baylor so far this year. She’s shown an ability to score and provide a bit of leadership as well. She can help the Phoenix Mercury’s bench and provide them a lift when the starters need a break.

  • 6. Beatrice Mompremier – Miami – Minnesota Lynx
  • 7. Aari McDonald** – Arizona – Seattle Storm
  • 8. Ruthy Hebard – Oregon –  Chicago Sky
  • 9. Tynice Martin – West Virginia – Dallas Wings
  • 10. Crystal Dangerfield – Connecticut – Connecticut Sun

We are now very near the holiday break and that means that the non conference part of the schedule is slowly coming to a close. The next two weeks (Week 6 & Week 7) will be shortened due to many colleges playing lighter schedules or on holiday break. Instead of the usual top 36 seniors, top 27 juniors, top 18 sophomores and top 9 freshmen, it will be the top 20 seniors, the top 15 juniors, the top 10 sophomores and the top 5 freshmen.

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.

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.
