The Vermont women's basketball team will represent America East in the
Postseason WNIT Tournament. The Catamounts earn the bid to the WNIT via
Hartford's 61-45 win over Boston U in the America East Championship game
Hartford will receive the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA
Tournament and Vermont owns the next best overall record in league play
at 23-8, therefore getting the invitation to the WNIT.
The 48-team field for the Postseason WNIT will be announced on Monday
(March 17) evening. The announcement of the teams selected to the WNIT
will be made following the NCAA Tournament selection show, which ends at
8:00pm on Monday.
This will be Vermont's second trip to the WNIT. UVM last went to the
WNIT in 2002 and advanced to the quarterfinals after defeating Holy
Cross and St. Joseph's (Pa.) at Patrick Gymnasium. Vermont's
quarterfinal run is the farthest any America East team has advanced in
the league's WNIT history.
