Listed below are the top 36 seniors, the top 27 juniors, the top 18 sophomores and the top 9 freshmen for the week of January 8 to January 14th. You can find the previous week’s rankings here. Have questions or are curious about these rankings? Read my FAQ page here.

Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings – Class by Class! Week 9

Now that conference play is underway, we are starting to get a sense of just how good these teams and players are. We still have two months of conference play and there is still much to be decided. First of all, congratulations to Shakayla Hill of Grambling State for notching a quadruple double in 25 years! That is an amazing feat which landed her a spot in this week’s rankings despite Grambling State’s overall record.

Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings – Class by Class! Week 7! *shortened version*

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the holidays with your close family and friends making special memories. We are now into Week 7 of these rankings and a ton of teams have either finished or almost done playing their non conference part of the schedule. Just like last week, this will be a shortened version of the rankings due to the holidays. So, it will be the top 20 seniors, the top 15 juniors, the top 10 sophomores and the top 5 freshmen instead of the usual 36 seniors, 27 juniors, 18 sophomores and 9 freshmen. This makes the list much more tougher to get on so if your player was not on the list this week, there’s a good chance they will be back next week. The rankings will get back to normal for next week as some leagues begin their conference part of the schedule.

If you would like to see the previous week’s rankings, click here. If you have any questions, check my FAQ page or leave them in the comments section and I will get back to you.

Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings – Class by Class! Week 6 *shortened version*

We are now nearing the holiday break and that means there is only a couple of weeks left to play in the non conference part of the schedule.

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

Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings – Class by Class! Week 4

ATTENTION*** Even after a year of doing these college basketball weekly rankings, I’m STILL getting the same questions once again. So I thought I would remind people once again the premise behind these rankings, how I evaluate the players, how top players are sometimes not there, how I evaluate freshmen, etc. If you already know ALL of this, then feel free to skip this paragraph and move on to the rankings.

These weekly college basketball rankings are designed to help people see who are the top players in each class which are seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen. The reason behind why I have 36 senior players is because the WNBA Draft drafts the top 36 seniors or international players. I wanted to keep it like that because basically, I wanted to see who were the top players that could eventually make a WNBA roster or superstars that could be WNBA ready early. It then decreases by 9 for each of the following classes. It’s nothing special. Just basic math. I evaluate the players by taking the top colleges and some of the mid major ones as well. I look at their schedule, I look at their RPI and out of conference schedule as well. Sometimes, if a college upsets a ranked team, I take the player from the opposing team and give them a shout out for that week.

The basic reason why these rankings are NOT overall based is because I wanted to see week to week who were the best among their class. Those that regularly stood out, those that made a difference among their teams. Chances are, if a top player is playing well every week, they will be there. If sometimes, you don’t see a top player listed, it could be one of two reasons. 1) Injured 2) Did not play well that week OR was not the reason why the team won that game that week. If sometimes you see a player who you don’t think is a top 36 player, keep in mind that either their team is undefeated (which is worth something!) or that they’ve played tough competition and they deserve a spot. I try to make these rankings fair and they take up quite a bit of time to put together.

This is NOT my day job. It’s something I do for fun and in my spare time. For the freshmen, I rank them just a bit different from the other classes. I take the best performances from each of the freshmen regardless of school record (because it’s not their fault their school hasn’t played well, it’s their first year) OR if a top college’s freshmen played well, they will also get a spot. I have also added the (+) or (-) signs due to request so that you can track your players week to week much easier. If a player has a (NR) that just means that they were not ranked the previous week. It does NOT mean that they haven’t been in the rankings in other weeks.

At the end of the day, I’m a human and can make mistakes. I’m sure I missed some top performances and I just wanted to put these rankings because I felt we were sorely missing this in women’s college basketball. If you still have questions or comments to make, leave them in my comments OR on my Twitter page.
