Best Women's Basketball Colleges

Best Colleges for Women’s Basketball

NCSA analyzed over 980 four-year colleges with women’s college basketball programs across four division levels (D1, D2, D3 and NAIA) to develop a list of the Best Women’s Basketball Colleges for Student-Athletes.

NCSA Power Rankings are based on proprietary analysis of NCSA Favorites data obtained from the college search activity of the over 2 million student-athletes on the NCSA recruiting network, U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges general academic rankings, and the U.S. Department of Education College Scorecard graduation rates and average cost after aid.

For more information on the NCSA Power Rankings, visit our press kit or email us.
