The University of Wisconsin-Superior and UW-Stevens Point have earned spots on the Women's Basketball Coaches Association NCAA Division III Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll for the 2010-11 season.

The WBCA Academic Top 25 annually recognizes NCAA Divisions I, II and III; NAIA; and junior college/community college teams across the nation that carry the highest combined grade point averages inclusive of all student-athletes on their rosters for the entire season. The 2010-11 season is the 14th in which the WBCA has presented the standings.

UWS ranked sixth on the NCAA Division III list with a 3.537 grade point average, while UWSP was 18th with a 3.459 mark. Case Western Reserve University (Ohio) topped the listings with a 3.609 assessment.

A team's GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of hours attempted by all team members in the academic terms (semesters or quarters) that the season spans. Weighted grades are converted to a 4.0 scale. The GPAs are rounded to the nearest thousandth of a point. Teams are nominated for the honor by a WBCA-member head coach. A team must have a 3.000 or better GPA to be nominated.
