2022 Domination Rankings

TOP 32 - CBT’s DOMINATION RANKINGS -12/24/2022


1 Oakton Community College Owls - (Women's NJCCA D2 - 13-0 - MOV 48)

The school's website claims, "You have big goals. We have your back." I'm sure that's true, well, unless you are an opponent of these women. Then you get absolutely destroyed. (The school's website also has them at "only" 12-0, but I found video evidence of a win on 12/20 - albeit by a "mere" 36 points.)


2.CCBC ESSEX Knights (Women's NJCAA D2 - 12-0 - MOV 44.5)

CCBC? That's Community College of Baltimore County. So when you head to Baltimore to check out sites from The Wire, maybe check out these women as well.


3. Christopher Newport Captains (Women's D3 - 11-0 - MOV - 44.6)

The Captains remain ranked and I remain committed to my goal of providing a new fun fact about Mr. Newport: the name of his ship that landed at Jamestown was called Susan Constant. I now have a new mission: find out who Susan was, and what she was constantly. I do know the team has no Susan, but it does have Faith - Faith Henderson. She's one of a whopping 12 players on the team averaging double digit points per game.


4.LSU Tigers (Women's D1 - 12-0 - MOV 44)

LSU has a real live tiger on campus. It can kill its prey quite quickly. Though not as fast as these ladies can. 27 steals have already been tallied by the somewhat ironically named Angel Reese.


5. South Carolina Gamecocks (Women's D1 - 12-0 - MOV 39)

Last year's National Champs are undefeated. And they play LSU, this year's current most dominant D1W team, on Feb 12th. Yeah, that could be worth watching.


6.Georgetown Hoyas (Men's Club - 4-0 - MOV 43) 

So you're thinking, you'll play club hoops, yeah, it'll be easy. Then you run into Georgetown's 

Jack Mancini (6', 5" 210 lb) and Rodrigo Ruiz (6' 7" 205 lb). And now you're not thinking club hoops is that easy any more.


7. Rochester Com & Tech Yellow Jackets (Women's NJCAA D3 - 9-0 - MOV 39)

After massive snow  storms you don't expect to see yellow jackets surviving. But these women are thriving.  Myia Ruzek is shooting an amazing 43.4% from 3 - and in blizzard conditions.


8.UMass Minutewomen (Women's Club - 6-0 - MOV 42)

Prudence Wright led the only group of Minute Women during the Revolutionary War. And yet for some reason the name Prudence is only the 2468th most popular girls name. 


9.Central Maine CC Mustangs (Women's USCAA D2 - 14-0 - MOV 39.35)

When trying to figure out how tough these women are you could look at their record. Or their margin of victory. Or better yet, the name of their school. Yeah, they are living in Maine! And they are doing so voluntarily. 


10. NYU Violets (Women's D3 - 8-0 - MOV 34.5)

These women may be Violets, but they definitely do not shrink. In fact, they have 5 players at least 6 feet tall.


11. Morton College Panthers (Women's NJCAA D2 - 13-0 - MOV 33)

Morton College is named after Julius Morton, the former Secretary of Agriculture - which has nothing to do with the school's nickname, we hope.


12.DeSales Bulldogs (Women's D3 - 10-0 - Mov 33)

The university is located in Center Valley, PA which you can easily find by just going to the center of PA - and then head about 100 miles east.


13. NYU Violets (Men's D3 - 9-0 - MOV 32.4)


14. Alabama  (Women's Wheelchair - 8-0 - MOV 35)


15. Anoka-Ramsey (Women's NJCAA D3 - 7-0 - MOV 33)


16.Eastern Florida State (Womens NJCAA D1 - 13-0 - MOV 31.5


17.Arizona Wildcats (Men's Wheelchair 5-0 - MOV 31.25)


18.Grand Valley State (Women's D2 - 11-0 - MOV 31)


19. Nova Southeastern (Men's D2 - 10-0 - MOV 30.6)


20. Campbellsville (Women's NCCA - 12-0 - MOV 26.8


21. Ohio State (Women's D1 - 13-0 MOV 26)


22. Southern Idaho (Men's NJCAA D1 - 15-0 - 25.8)


23. UConn (Men's D1 - 13-0 - MOV 25)


24.Tougaloo (Men's NAIA - 9-0 - MOV 24)


25.Ashland (Women's D2 - 12-0 - MOV 23.8)


26. Davidson-Davie Co (Men's NJCAA D2 - 11-0 - MOV 22.9)


27.Central Methodist (Women's NAIA - 11-0 22.7)


28. Brookdale CC (Men's NJCAA D3 - 13-0 - MOV 22.0)


29. Keene St (Men's D3 - 10-0 MOV - 22.4)


30.St. Joe's (Conn) (Men's D3 - 9-0 - MOV 24.6)


31.Chipola (Men's NJCAA D1 - 16-0 - MOV 20.75)


32.Eastern Arizona (Women's NJCAA D1 - 11-0 MOV 22.9)

12/24/2022 Post


Welcome to College Basketball Times' 4th straight week of our noble attempt to rank women, men and all categories of college hoops, including wheelchair, together. Noble? Ok, maybe crazy is better. But it's all part of our "non-profit" mission of equal coverage for all levels. Uh Dave, don't you realize that not all categories are equal? Well, that might be true, but that doesn't mean we can't try to rank them all together based on which teams are most dominant within their own category. We factor in a team's record, margin of victory and some other things. Some other things? Yeah, that's kind of our secret sauce. Now just to be clear, while we once again have Alabama’s Women’s Wheelchair team ranked ahead of UConn Men’s D1 team, that doesn’t mean we think that Alabama would beat UConn. We just think Alabama is currently dominating their category more than UConn is dominating theirs. But for the record, we still think the Alabama Women’s Wheelchair team would crush the UConn men  - in wheelchair basketball.  


Sincerely - Dave Barend - Grand Poobah, College Basketball Times.




TOP 25 - CBT’s DOMINATION RANKINGS -12/17/02


1 Oakton Community College Owls - (Women's NJCCA D2 - 12-0 - MOV 49)

The most dominate team in the country is who? Yup, that's what the Owls say. Amy Campbell just poured in a whopping 31 points and she's averaging 57% from three and she's good. Though that last part is probably pretty obvious. 


2. Christopher Newport Captains (Women's D3 - 10-0 - MOV - 45.7)

As promised (to those who read the prior CBT Domination Rankings) here is yet another fun fact about Mr. Newport: During a voyage to the Caribbean he lost an arm. (And it seems clear he never found it.) In contrast, the women who play hoops for the school that bears his name have lost nothing. And they have a pretty stellar 5th year senior named Sandra Fan. Yup, I'm a Fan fan.


3.CCBC ESSEX Knights (Women's NJCAA D2 - 10-0 - MOV 42)

Harlem Globetrotter Too Tall Hall went to CCBC Essex - and these women don't need him.   


4.LSU Tigers (Women's D1 - 12-0 - MOV 44)

Shouldn't they be a little lower? Not a chance. Why? They're 12-0. And? And I'm more than a little bit afraid of their coach. 


5.Georgetown Hoyas (Men's Club - 4-0 - MOV 43) 

The school's chant is "Hoya Saxa." It apparently means what rocks. Answer: these guys. They are the most dominate men's team in the country. 


6.UMass Minutewomen (Women's Club - 6-0 - MOV 42)

These women are the best in the Club. I bet they can dance too.


7.Central Maine CC Mustangs (Women's USCAA D2 - 14-0 - MOV 39.35)

Thank God they changed their name from Androscoggin State. It took me 5 tries to spell that correctly. I prefer easy names like Luna Love who just tallied another 15 points in win number 14.


8. Morton College Panthers (Women's NJCAA D2 - 13-0 - MOV 33)

Morton's motto is "Imagine what you can do!" Well, how about winning your first 13 games? No need to imagine, it happened. With Claire Hyde knocked down 3-pointers in big bunches, the team might want to start imagining a national championship.


9. DeSales Bulldogs (Women's D3 - 9-0 - Mov 34)

The university is named after St. Francis de Sales whose heart was nearly taken - about 150 years after his death. Disturbing, but true. Well no chance anyone's taking the heart of these women. Keep an eye on Megan Bealer who is averaging 27 points per game. Yeah, she's probably hard to miss.


10. NYU Violets (Men's D3 - 9-0 - MOV 32.4)

If you find ourself talking to violet bobcat in New York you might not be drunk. You might instead be hanging out with NYU's mascot. And you might want to follow him to the basketball arena because these guys can play.


11. Alabama  (Women's Wheelchair - 8-0 - MOV 35)


12. Anoka-Ramsey (Women's NJCAA D3 - 7-0 - MOV 33)


13.Eastern Florida State (Womens NJCAA D1 - 13-0 - MOV 31.5


14.Arizona Wildcats (Men's Wheelchair 5-0 - MOV 31.25)


15.Grand Valley State (Women's D2 - 11-0 - MOV 31)


16. Orange CC College (Men's NJCAA D1 - 7-0 - MOV 30.7)


17.Virginia (Women's D1 - 12-0 - MOV 26.5)


18.UConn (Men's D1 - 12-0 - MOV 26.1)


19.Campbellsville (Women's NCCAA 11-0 MOV 25.9)


20.St. Joe's (Conn) (Men's D3 - 9-0 - MOV 24.6)


21.Tougaloo (Men's NAIA - 9-0 - MOV 24)


22.St. Thomas University (Women's NAIA  - 14-0 - MOV 23)


23.Ashland (Women's D2 - 11-0 - MOV 23)


24. Davidson-Davie Co (Men's NJCAA D2 - 11-0 - MOV 22.9)


25. Brookdale CC (Men's NJCAA D3 - 12-0 - MOV 21.8)

12/17/2022 Post


College Basketball Times is now on week #3 of attempting to rank women, men and all categories of college hoops, including wheelchair, together. Turns out it's not all that easy. Is it even possible, you ask?  Well we hope so. It’s done based on which teams are dominating their own category the most. We factor in a team's record, margin of victory and some other things. Some other things? What other things? Those "other things" remain a secret. So you can rely on that when you mess up? That is in no way entirely inaccurate. Now just to be clear, while we once again have Alabama’s Women’s Wheelchair team ranked ahead of UConn Men’s D1 team, that doesn’t mean we think that Alabama would beat UConn. We just think Alabama is currently dominating their category more than UConn is dominating theirs. But for the record, we still think the Alabama Women’s Wheelchair team would crush the UConn men  - in wheelchair basketball.

TOP 30 - CBT’s DOMINATION RANKINGS -12/10/02


1.Rochester Comm & Tech (Women's NJCAA D3 - 8-0 - MOV 51.1) 

They went from unranked last week to the #1 most dominate team in they country this week. How? Uh Dave, maybe you missed them. No, not possible. Ok maybe possible. But no missing the Yellow Jackets now with an 51.1 point average margin of victory, 


2.Christopher Newport (Women's D3 - 9-0 - MOV 47)

My plan is to provide a new fun fact about Mr. Newport as long as this team stays in the rankings. So, in addition to captaining a ship to Jamestown, he crashed one in Bermuda. Ok, maybe that's not so fun. But it surely must be fun being on this team.


3.CCBC ESSEX (Women's NJCCA D2 - 10-0 - MOV 43)

Just couldn't move this team up from last week's spot. But I got a nice note from the coach, so no way I could move them down. 


4.Georgetown (Men's Club - 4-0 - MOV 43) 

These guys are so good they moved up 2 spots and didn't even play a game this week. 


5.Bryant & Stratton Buffalo (Women's USCAA D1 - 7-0 -MOV 41.5) 

Their record really should be 8-0: they beat 7 teams and well over 6 feet of snow.


6.UMass (Women’s Club - 6-0 - MOV 42.1)

Ok ladies, yeah you lost the top spot. But you haven't lost game.  Now please understand that winning isn't everything. Winning and winning huge - now that's everything.


7.Central Maine C.C. (Women's USCAA D2 - 13-0 - MOV 39)

Unfortunately, the Mustangs don't have a single player named Sally. And I was all set to make a stellar Wilson Pickett "Mustang Sally" joke - to be understood by nobody under the age of 40.  Central Maine does have someone with an even better name though: Luna Love. She has a relatively impressive FT percentage too - 100%.


8.Alabama (Women’s Wheelchair - 8-0 - MOV 35)

Need some joy this holiday season? I give you Joy Haizelden who tallied an extremely impressive 28 points in the Tide's last game. And you can bet she was full of - all together now - joy.


9.Langston (Men’s NAIA - 11-0 - MOV 28.72)

Since last week they won 2 games and raised their MOV over a point - and yet they dropped 5 spots in the Domination Rankings. Sorry guys, there's a whole lot of domination going on.  


10.(Tie) Hope College (Women's D3 - 9-0 - MOV 38.7)

I'm not sure I would have fit in at Hope. I'm way too pessimistic. But Claire Baguley and Meg Morehouse sure fit fine as both are shooting over 50% from 3pt range.


10.(Tie) UConn (Men's D1 - 11-0 - MOV 26.5)  

I always wanted UConn to get a guy named Cornelius. Then they could call him UConn Cornelius. And after he slams he could look down at his opponent and say, "That's a humble Bumble."


12.Southern Idaho (Men's NJCCA D1 - 14-0 - MOV 27.5)


13.East Florida State (Women's NJCCA D1 - 12-0 - MOV 31.3)


14.Arizona (Men’s Wheelchair - 5-0 - MOV 31.25)


15.Dordt (Women's NAIA - 12-0 - MOV 21)


16.DeSales (Women's D3 - 9-0 - MOV 34.8)


17.Chipola (NJCAA D1 - 15-0 - MOV 17.9)


18.Arkansas (Women's D1 - 12-0 - MOV 20.75)


19.St. Thomas University (Women's NAIA - 11-0 - MOV 25.18)


20. Virginia (Women's D1 - 11-0 - MOV 23.5)


21.Missouri Southern (Women's D2 - 11-0 - MOV 18.9)


22.Niagara C. C. (Men's NJCAA D2 - 11-0 - MOV 18.2)


23.Davidson-Davie CC (Men’s NJCAA D2 - 10-0 - MOV 24.9)


24.Morton (Women's NJCCA D2 - 10-0 - MOV 28.4)


25.Brookdale CC (Men's NJCAA D3 - 10-0 MOV 24)


26.Ashland (Women's D2 - 10-0 - MOV 23.2)


27.Keene State (Men's D3 - 10-0 - MOV 22.4)


28.Tougaloo College (Men's NAIA - 9-0 - MOV - 24) 


29.NW Missouri St. (Men’s D2 - 8-0 - MOV 20.1)


30.Virginia Tech  (Men's Club - 8-0 MOV 20.25)

12/10/2022 Post


College Basketball Times is attempting to do something that’s never been done before. Well, actually we just did it last week. But it still feels new. We are ranking women, men and all categories of college hoops, including wheelchair, together. How is that even possible, you ask? Well, it’s really not - unless it’s done based on which teams are dominating their own category the most. (Yes, I did mention this last week, but maybe one or two of you are brand new). So while we have Alabama’s Women’s Wheelchair team ranked ahead of UConn Men’s D1 team, that doesn’t mean we think that Alabama would beat UConn. We just think Alabama is currently dominating their category more than UConn is dominating theirs. But for the record, the Alabama Women’s Wheelchair team would crush the UConn men  - in wheelchair basketball.  (And yes, I just swapped UConn for Houston in my write-up from last week.)


Sincerely - Dave Barend - Grand Poobah, College Basketball Times.

P.S. - MOV means average margin of victory. Yeah, maybe I should change that to AMOV.




TOP 25 - CBT’s DOMINATION RANKINGS -12/2/02

1.UMass (Women’s Club - 4-0 - MOV 60.75)

UMass’ Women’s Club team is the #1 team in the country? UMust be kidding me. Nope. Though only 4-0, with an average margin of victory (MOV) of a whopping 60.75, these women had to be #1. Who says UMass can’t win without Coach Cal?

2.LSU (Women’s D1 - 9-0 - MOV 41)

My then 3 year old daughter started rooting for LSU because “they are purple - and I can spell them.” Makes sense. Though they are also really good with a MOV of 41.

3.CCBC Essex (Women’s NJCCA D3 - 9-0 - MOV 41)

They just won a game by 100 points. No, I didn’t mean they just scored 100 points. They actually won a game 127-27. It appears every player for the Knights got in the game. Though it’s hard to imagine the coach not playing everyone. “Sorry Sally. I know we are up by 100, but that just doesn’t feel like a safe enough lead for you.”

4.Langston (Men’s NAIA - 9-0 - MOV-26.5)

The alma matter of one of the greatest Harlem Globetrotters ever, Marcus Haynes, is a whopping 9-0 already. 

5.Christopher Newport (Women’s D3 - 8-0 - MOV 46.25)

What, you don’t know who Christopher Newport was?  He captained the largest ship that brought the first settlers to Jamestown, of course. (Thank you Google.) And he has a school named after him with an incredibly impressive women’s basketball team.

6.Georgetown (Men’s Club - 4-0 - MOV 43)

Patrick Ewing might want to check these guys out. With a MOV of 43, they are, oh what’s the word - dominant.

7. Alabama (Women’s Wheelchair - 8-0 - MOV 35)

Roll Tide has an additional meaning for these ladies. And they just might roll to another championship and maybe even an undefeated season. 


8. Houston (Men’s D1 - 8-0 - MOV 26.75)

To paraphrase the famous line in Apollo 13, “Houston, we don’t have a problem.” Yes, we realize you are great. But you are “only” 8-0 and your MOV is “only” 26.75


9.Arizona (Men’s Wheelchair - 5-0 - MOV 31.25)

With a 5-0 record and a 31.25 MOV, Arizona is well deserving of a top 10 ranking - we think. Uh Dave, what do you mean ‘we think’? Well, it’s pretty hard finding a place with accurate stats for the wheelchair division of college hoops. Uh Dave, shouldn’t this be that place?

10. Indiana South Bend (Women’s NJCAA D1 - 8-0 - MOV-30.8)

Yes, we realize that Notre Dame just knocked off UConn, but right now the most dominant team in South Bend, Indiana is Indiana-South Bend. They have a stellar sister combo of Katie and Maddie Gard who both play - wait for it - guard.


11. Davidson-Davie CC (Men’s NJCAA D2 - 9-0 - MOV 26.2)


12. Campellsville (Women’s NCCAA - 6-0 - MOV 30.33)


13. Trinity TX (Women’s D3 - 8-0 (MOV 29.8)


14. Dordt (Women’s NAIA - 9-0 - MOV 25.11)


15. Loyola-New Orleans (Women’s NAIA) 8-0 (MOV 26)


16. Brookdale CC (Men’s NJCCA D3 - 9-0 - MOV 25)


17. Lenoir-Rhyne  (Women’s D2 - 9-0 - MOV 24)


18. NW Missouri St. (Men’s D2 - 8-0 - MOV 22)


19. Grace College (Men’s NAIA - 10-0 - MOV 20.8)


20. Southern Miss (Men’s D1 - 8-0 - MOV 21.37)


21. Arkansas (Women D1 - 9-0 - MOV 20.8)


22. Virginia (Women D1 - 9-0 - MOV 20.8)


23. Missouri (Men’s D1 - 8-0 - MOV 20.75)


24. Ohio State (Women’s Club - 7-0 - MOV 25.8)


25. Sacred Heart (Women’s Club - 4-0 - MOV 39.5)

College Basketball Times is attempting to do something that’s never been done before, and I think it’s kind of cool. Though I’m pretty old and no longer have a clue about what is cool. We, however,  are ranking women, men and all categories of college hoops, including wheelchair, together. How is that even possible, you ask? Well, it’s really not - unless it’s done based on which teams are dominating their own category the most. Ahh. So while we have Alabama’s Women’s Wheelchair team ranked ahead of Houston’s Men’s D1 team, that doesn’t mean we think that Alabama would beat Houston. We just think Alabama is currently dominating their category more than Houston is dominating theirs. But for the record, the Alabama Women’s Wheelchair team would crush Houston’s men  - in wheelchair basketball.
