Women’s College Basketball Player Rankings – Class by Class! Week 8

As the end of the year winds down, we are now heading out of the non conference part of the schedule and into the conference part of the schedule. Some leagues have already begun conference play and conference play is usually a big indicator of which teams will qualify for the NCAA tournament in March. We are now also halfway through these rankings, which means we are now getting a feel of who the top players in the first half of the season are and what teams really stand out. This past week, coming off the Christmas break, some top teams did not play while a large majority of others did but only over the weekend. Which means that some of the top players usually listed in the rankings are not ranked this week.

If you have questions or are a first time reader to these rankings, I highly suggest reading the FAQ page for common questions. Click here to see the previous week’s rankings.

Listed below are the top 36 seniors, the top 27 juniors, the top 18 sophomores and the top 9 freshmen for the week of Dec. 23rd to Dec. 29th.

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.

It’s that time of year again! The start of a brand new women’s college basketball season is upon us with many exciting story lines to watch for. This also means that the women’s college basketball players rankings are back! This is the fourth year of compiling these rankings and they take a lot of time, energy and effort. It’s 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 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 are updated weekly.
