2018 WNBA Mock Draft Version 2.0

With the Elite 8 games over and the Final Four set to begin on Friday, it is now time to unveil the second version of my 2018 WNBA Mock Draft. The first version received so many views unexpectedly and it was just simply amazing to see. You can view it here.

I will have TWO more versions of this mock draft. One right after the Final Four and then the FINAL version just a couple of days before the actual WNBA Draft which will take place on April 12. You may have already noticed some slight differences between the first and second version. Some players stock rose while others fell. Also, a new name is in the draft because of early declarations. Look for those in my next two versions IF more players declare early or if there are any pre – draft trades.

* As always, my Mock Drafts are a mix between NCAA tournament results / overall play plus the overall fit on the team*

2018 WNBA Mock Draft Version 1.0

With the NCAA women’s tournament well underway and the first two rounds officially completed, it is now time to unveil my WNBA mock draft for this year.

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.

Before we dive right into this rankings, I just want to give you a quick reminder. These are WEEKLY rankings. Not OVERALL rankings. These will change from week to week. At the very end, I will compile the overall rankings list which will be out in the first week of March.

You can view last week’s rankings here. Have any questions or are a new reader of the rankings? Check my FAQ page.

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

The last full week of regular season play has come and ended. What a regular season. Yes, UCONN is still undefeated. But other than that, the unpredictability was fun to watch this season. I’m greatly looking forward to the conference tourneys and then the NCAA tournament!

Note: *Before we jump into Week 16 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 from 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 the confusion*

Listed below are the top 36 seniors, the top 27 juniors, the top 18 sophomores and the top 9 freshmen for the week of Feb 20th to the 26th. You can check the previous week rankings here.

Women’s College Basketball Player Weekly Rankings – Week 13! Class by Class!

We are officially one month away from conference tournaments starting and a month away from the regular season coming to a close. This 2016/2017 regular season has been memorable and there’s still plenty of good action left.

Without any further ado, listed below are the top 36 seniors, the top 27 juniors, the top 18 sophomores and the top 9 freshmen for the week of Jan 30th to Feb 5th.
