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

Happy New Year! The new year is upon us and with that opens up the beginning of conference play. Conference play is sure to shake up the rankings this week and changed a lot of players rankings this week. Already this week, there were some interesting games, some upsets of top teams and the top college basketball players all came to play.

*Note: *Before we jump into Week 8 rankings, I just thought I would clear some confusion regarding the rankings. These are weekly rankings, based on games played from the week before. These are NOT overall rankings. If a player’s team did not play that week or was injured, they will NOT be on the list that week. These player rankings were designed to see which players were consistently playing well, week to week. I am checking in and on around 52(!!!) schools each week to get a fair assessment on top players. There’s no bias in these rankings, so if your player is moved around, that just means another player had a better week against stronger competition, or was not the best player on their team during that week. I always check and give credit to players who perform well vs top 25 teams, top 10 teams, etc. I also look into the blowouts and assess the players fairly there as well. I hope this clears some confusion*
