Women’s College Basketball Player Rankings – Class by Class! Week 16

lindsey pulliam, northwestern

As we end the women’s college basketball regular season comes to a close, more and more upsets occur every week which makes the rankings so hard to make and update for myself as players come in and then are out the next week, etc but as I have stated before in previous rankings post, it sure is fun to watch.

As my rankings are winding down, normally next week would be the final overall rankings post. HOWEVER, because of the nature of upsets this season from many teams, one more week is definitely needed to sort out all of the player rankings, so the FINAL OVERALL Women’s College Basketball Player Rankings will be out Monday, March 9th. Make sure you follow my blog so you can receive the rankings first via email.

Listed below are the top 36 seniors (four players tied!), top 27 juniors, top 18 sophomores and top 11 freshmen (four players were tied!) for the week of February 17th to February 23rd. If you are new to these rankings OR have questions, please read the FAQ page first. If you would like to view last week’s rankings, you may do so here.

Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings – Class by Class! Week 5

Editors Note: I was out of town this weekend for to visit my relatives and so I was unable to keep up with the games and scores through the weekend but I still wanted to get a post up. Luckily, Tom Suiter came through and delivered this week’s post. This will be the only time you will see the rankings posted on a Tuesday, it will go back to the normal slot every Monday. This also means that last night’s performances will be put in next week’s post.

—————————————————————————————————————————————

It was a Thanksgiving holiday hangover for many teams – or simply, such as #1 Stanford’s case, semester exams – but a few standout performances dominated the headlines as the upsets continue to mount in the early portion of the season. But not all the drama ended with the various warm-weather Thanksgiving tournaments. This week saw the beloved Big12/SEC Challenge return and the ACC-Big Ten Challenge surprises on the victory count – both provided a few upsets as well as some standout performances in each class, punctuated by the annual Notre Dame/Connecticut match-up on Sunday.

Rhyne Howard could be the greatest player to ever suit up for Kentucky and as a sophomore, tied her career high against Charlotte with 29 points and then broke it on Sunday against Samford by a point. Megan Walker was a force again on the court, her all-around improvement into an All-America caliber player for the Huskies, averaging 27.5 per game this week.  Her freshmen teammate Aubrey Griffin had a breakout game against Seton Hall – before a quiet outing against the Irish – but that still puts her atop this week’s frosh ranking; Geno and the Storrs faithful are hoping the Seton Hall game will be a sign of consistency to come. Not to be outdone, several mid-major stars showed up with Western Kentucky’s Dee Givens, Rider’s Stella Johnson and South Dakota’s Hannah Sjerven all showing out and putting up big numbers. Michaela Oyenwere and Chennedy Carter carried standout performances in their wins as well, perhaps Carter’s scoring her team’s final 15 points in the Oklahoma State wine would put her on top of most lists if not for Walker’s back-to-back dominance against UConn’s former Big East foes.

Ohio State relied on their underclassmen and some new faces in Columbus to carry them past Louisville, who astoundingly received lackluster performances from their juniors and seniors and couldn’t get a bucket when needed. West Virginia handed Mississippi State their first non-conference home loss in 5 years. Florida State’s senior trio had great games this past week  – including a come-from-behind victory against Michigan State and some freshmen help in the Sunday league victory against Clemson.

New names are emerging on this list, so looking forward to seeing who can sustain performances in the weeks ahead, with turkey hangovers complete, conference season kicking off and more exams looming ahead.

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. 2nd to Dec. 8th. Have questions? Read my FAQ page. Click here for last week’s 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.
