NAIA - Women's Basketball - Top 25 - No. 1 Westmont (Calif.)

2020-21 Women's Basketball Coaches' Top 25 Poll - No. 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo - Westmont (Calif.) remains at No.1 in the latest 2020-21 NAIA Women's Basketball Coaches' Top 25 Poll. The Warriors have now been at No. 1 for the last four Top 25 polls.  

Poll Methodology

  • The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences, Association of Independent Institutions and Unaffiliated Groups.
  • The Top 25 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 30 points for each first-place vote, 29 for second place and so on through the list.
  • The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered low ratings) is removed and the team’s ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for every ballot (including discounted ballots) that the team appears on.
  • Teams that receive only one point in the ballot are not considered “receiving votes.”
