NCAA announces third of three February top 10 rankings

Published on February 29, 2016


The NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Sport Committee announced the third of three February top-10 rankings in seed order during halftime of the No. 20 South Florida at No. 1 Connecticut contest on ESPN 2 Monday night.

According to the NCAA, the rankings will have no bearing on the final 2016 championship bracket that will be revealed on March 14 at 7 p.m. EST on ESPN. The teams on the list are identical to those identified in the first two rankings on Feb. 1 and Feb. 15. Texas made a move over the last two weeks from No. 6 to No. 5, while Ohio State had the biggest move down, dropping from No. 5 to No. 9.

“There was lively discussion about the teams and their relative standing almost all the way through the top 10,” said Chris Dawson, chair of the committee and associate commissioner at the Pac-12 Conference. “Trying to balance the season resumes, the eye test and all the other factors proved challenging. The next two weeks will be especially important for many teams as they look to close out the regular season strong and perform well at their respective conference tournaments. We will be watching.”

  2. South Carolina
