Week 14 A-10 Women’s Basketball Power Rankings

We have a new number one this week! Saint Joseph’s sits a top of this week’s power rankings, and for the first time since the creation of our power rankings. George Mason drops down to the spot after a tough loss to the Hawks last Thursday. The rest of the top four remain unchanged with Richmond holding strong at the spot and VCU at the . Richmond travels across town to face VCU for the second time this season on Wednesday night. This game between the Spiders and the Rams could very well be a huge deciding factor in who is in contention for the regular season title. Some other games to watch this week include George Mason traveling to face Davidson for the second time this season on Wednesday, Rhode Island hosts Davidson in a game that could factor into seeding for the conference tournament on Saturday afternoon, and Loyola Chicago traveling to face Richmond on Saturday afternoon. The Ramblers also sit at the spot which is the highest they have been since joining the conference. We have a great week of basketball ahead of us and there are only three more weeks left in the regular season!

Here is the current projected bracket for the A-10 Tournament:
