KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Thomas More (Ky.) remains at the top of the latest edition of the 2022-23 NAIA Women’s Basketball Coaches’ Top 25 Poll as one of two teams in the Top 25 to remain undefeated on the season.
- The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences, Independents 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.”
