Season 4 Power Rankings - Regular Season #5

Chuckles McGee - Cobbfather Post Gazette

It's time for the 5th edition of the Power Rankings! This past rankings period was highlighted by Florida solidifying their hold on the top spot with a stellar 12-2 record. After no one was able to hold down the top ranking for more than one period, Florida now seems firmly entrenched. Sacramento surged back to their preseason #2 ranking by going 11-4 during the period, while New York Pride held on to the number 3 spot going 9-5.

The biggest jumper in the rankings goes to #17 Syracuse, perhaps inspired by their NCAA hoops counterpart rallying for a 6 OT win and a strong Big East Tournament. Da 'Cuse rose 9 spots after going 10-4 this rankings period. #15 Ottawa and #16 Charleston both did well this period also, going 9-5.

Now the standard teams on the rise and teams on the decline section:

Teams on the rise: Florida, Sacramento, Charleston, Ottawa, Syracuse

Teams on the decline: Memphis, Rochester, Dover, St. Louis, Los Angeles

Here is the fifth edition of the Regular Season Power Rankings!!
