Week 2 A-10 Women’s Basketball Power Rankings

Lots of movement and craziness in Week 2 of the season!  Dayton drops all the way to #14 this week, after being 0-4 for the first time since 1991-1992 season. A loss for the Flyers to Ole Miss in their next game would mark the first time EVER Dayton will have started a season 0-5, making it the worst start in program history. On the flip side, Saint Joseph’s is 4-0 and coming off an impressive road win at Vanderbilt on Sunday! Lots of basketball on tap this week, and both GW and Fordham head west to Las Vegas this week, but for separate Feast Week MTEs.
