espnW 25 Power Rankings: Week 10


The rematch was moving, to say the least, and the No. 1 team in the nation stays put atop the espnW 25 Power Rankings for Week 10.

On Sunday, in a packed home gym (more than 200 fans were turned away because there was nowhere left to sit), Paul VI avenged an earlier loss to St. John's College with a 58-54 back-and-forth victory.

Undeclared junior Honesty Scott-Grayson led all scorers with 20 points, and Tennessee recruit Amira Collins added 10 for Paul VI.

Sydney Wood led St. John's College with 19 points.

In January, St. John's upset Paul VI 68-52. Anyone ready for Round 3? Our fingers are crossed.
