Week 5 A-10 Women’s Basketball Power Rankings

UMass remains atop the rankings, despite taking their second loss of the season against Boston College. In fact, all of the top-nine teams remained in the same spot as last week, with some major shuffling in spots 10-14. Saint Joseph’s climbs out of the bottom spot for the first time since Week 1, Saint Louis continues their slide through the rankings down to 11, and George Washington is back in the top-10 at #10. A light week of games ahead as most schools are in finals week, but everyone but George Washington and Saint Joseph’s plays at least one game this week.
