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

The first week (sort of) of college basketball has started and that means intrigue, excitement for all of the college players as well as the transfer college players who never got the opportunity to play last year.

Women’s College Basketball Final Overall Player Rankings for 2016/2017 – Class by Class!

What a season. How time flies. Beginning of the season, I had no clue as to how the season would go. From November to March, It has been my absolute pleasure in putting up these weekly rankings. You can check out the previous week rankings here or check my archives. But, these rankings are different. It is the overall player rankings, taken from my own weekly rankings.

I designed these overall rankings into a system. Over 16 weeks, whoever had the best week against top opponents in non conference play or conference play got a nod. I didn’t just limit the players to just the power 5 schools, I also included some really good mid major ones as well as if a mid major team had a big win against a Power 5 school, I had them in as well.

So who made the cut? Who were the top 36 seniors this year? The top 27 juniors? The top 18 sophomores? The top 9 freshmen? Read below and find out!

Women’s College Basketball Player Weekly Rankings – Week 14! Class by Class!

There are only three weeks left of regular season college basketball left and that means that it’s crunch time for teams to get ready for conference tournaments and the NCAA Tournament. 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. 6th to Feb. 12th.

Note: *Before we jump into Week 14 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*

Women’s College Basketball Player Weekly Rankings – Week 12! Class by Class!

We are ending the month of January this week and heading into a busy February where many teams have one last shot at improving their standings heading into the NCAA tournament. This was an interesting week. Not much movement towards the top, but some new players broke in as well as players who haven’t been on the list in a while.

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 23rd to Jan 29th.

Note: *Before we jump into Week 12 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.

Women’s College Basketball Player Weekly Rankings – Week 6 *Shortened version* Class by Class!

*Before we jump into Week 6 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 50(!!!) 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 their as well. I hope this clears some confusion from the questions I get asked from people.*

Looking to Week 6 rankings, this week, alot of schools were off, so I’ve decided to shorten the list for the next couple of weeks as schools are on winter break. It will include just the top 20 seniors, the top 15 juniors, the top 10 sophomores and the top 5 freshmen. This will make the list more competitive so that the players who did make it on the list this week were the best of the best. The top 36 seniors, the top 27 juniors, the top 18 sophomores, and the top 9 freshmen will be back next week. If you want to check out the previous week, click HERE. If you have MORE questions that didn’t get answered above, you can find my frequently asked questions page HERE.
