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.

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. 5th to Nov. 10th.

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

Lexie Hull of Stanford University

The women’s college basketball season is in full swing and we have new players to watch for, upcoming teams and new story lines to keep track of this season. This is the third year of tracking and ranking college players and it is been a labor of love and hard work that goes with these rankings.

I always get asked the same questions about how players are ranked and how they end up on this list in this particular order, so to those new readers or first time visitors to my blog, you can read my FAQ page. If you have any other questions that are not on there, you can always leave them in the comments or contact me via Twitter. My handle is @whoopsblogger.
