Wichita State’s women’s basketball team is waiting on a possible post-season bid tonight. The new 16-team Women’s Basketball Invitational is the likely destination. The WNIT expanded to 64 teams this season. Both tournaments announce their fields tonight, after the NCAA picks UConn and the rest of its field.
WSU (17-14) has an RPI rank of No. 160. The Shockers are hoping for a home game. Former Illinois State coach Jill Hutchison is on the WBI selection committee. Joe Ciampi is also on the committee. WSU coach Jody Adams was an assistant to Ciampi from 1994-96.
