Week 8 A-10 Women’s Basketball Power Rankings

Week 1 of A-10 play is in the books and for everything we learning this week, I think it raised about 10 more questions! The top four remains intact, and that’s where the consistency ends this week. Duquesne and GW take a jump this week up to 5th and 6th place respectively, while La Salle and George Mason take a tumble. Dayton crawls out of the cellar into 14th place after earning their first two wins of the season, including their road victory over the Patriots on Sunday afternoon. St. Bonaventure falls back into unfortunately familiar territory as the Bonnies continue to struggle this season. A big week lies ahead, as we hit the first full slate of the conference season, highlighted by vs as UMass hosts Rhode Island at 5:00 on Wednesday afternoon on ESPN+!
