CBT's Women's Juco Rankings - Feb 2022
Women's JUCO Ranking Update:
1. Three Rivers Community College (21-0): grabs the number one spot as the reigning defending champions Northwest Florida State (NWFS) takes their first loss against Chipola College in a nail biter of a finish. Three Rivers looks to continue their undefeated season through February, as they have overcome their opponents in blow-out victories throughout the last month. 2. NWFS (21-1): has won their last three games and plans to keep this streak through the rest of the season, still only dropping down one spot in the rankings. 3. Wabash Valley (20-1): their winning streak is at 19 games after beating Shawnee Community College and shooting over 47% on the season, moving them to the top 3 spot in the rankings.
4. Shelton State (22-1): has solidified the dominance that they have had all year on both sides of the ball. Shelton has maintained the best defense in the league with an average of 14 steals and 5 blocks per game this season. 5. Western Nebraska (20-1): Averaging over 90 points a game and coming off a win, Western Nebraska stays as an offensive powerhouse defeating Trinidad College 106-65 and moving them into the top 5.
6. Georgia Highlands (21-2): Sitting at the number 6 spot on a 19-game winning streak, the Highlands look to extend their success as they travel to Spartanburg Methodist for their next game. Undefeated in their conference, the Highlands are in a prime position to make a jump in the rankings if any team ahead of them loses.
7. College of Southern Idaho (22-2): This team can shoot the lights out with 3 players scoring over 40% from three-point range and clutch shooting down the stretch.
8. Chipola College (20-4): After defeating the defending champions, the Lady Indians have not lost a step and put everyone else on notice. They pride themselves on efficiency when scoring, shooting 45% from the field this season.
9. South Georgia Technical College (21-5): After a 10-game winning streak, South Georgia Tech starts off February with a devastating loss to the 6 ranked team Highlands with their top players struggling to shoot the ball efficiently. Having 2 of the top 5 scorers in their region, South Georgia does not look to have trouble scoring the ball much for much longer.
10. Moberly Area Community College (19-3): Scoring the third most points in the league so far, Moberly’s prolific offense has kept them in games all season. They have proved that they can go point for point with any team they play and that makes them capable of breaking the top five in the next month.
11. Eastern Oklahoma State College (19-4): EOS has not lost a game since the beginning of December, and they have proven to be a force to be reckoned with offensively the entire season. They lead the league in FG made per game this season at 33.6 and that has only been rising every game since the beginning of 2022.
12. Tyler Junior College (19-4): Rebounding and creating open looks for their shooters has been the formula for the Apache's all season long. Third in 3-point percentage is what has taken them to the next level and keeping them in contention with the top teams.
13. Trintiy Valley (16-3): After losing back-to-back games in January, the Lady Cardinals have bounced back with 3 straight wins. Trinity seems to have their momentum back beating their last 2 opponents in convincing fashion.
14. New Mexico Junior College (19-3): The Thunderbirds have an extremely well-balanced team in terms of scoring and that has been their greatest asset all season. Teams will struggle slowing them with so many different scoring options.
15. Arizona Western (21-1): The Matadors have dominated their region and have been one a hard team to keep down. They like to feed their centers and forwards who do the bulk of the scoring which has made it tough for smaller teams to defend all season.
