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

This is it. We have reached the final week before conference tournaments begin and NCAA March Madness starts. This was the week in many outstanding college basketball seniors had their last games in which they got to say goodbye to their schools and the fans. Since this is such a deep senior class, they had many memorable moments over their four years of college. Good luck moving forward seniors, and good luck to those who will be lucky enough to play in the WNBA this summer.

I will have the FINAL overall women’s college basketball rankings next week released on Monday, March 5th. This will be the final week in which the rankings are week to week based.

Listed below are the top 36 seniors, the top 27 juniors, the top 18 sophomores and the top 9 freshmen for the week of February 19th to February 25th. The previous weeks rankings can be found here. Have any questions? Check my FAQ page.

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!
