UND Women Accept Bid to WBI, Play at New Mexico Wednesday
The University of North Dakota will play its third postseason tournament in its last four seasons, officially accepting a bid to play in the Women’s Basketball Invitational (WBI) Monday. UND will head to Albuquerque, N.M. to play host New Mexico in the opening round of the 16-team tournament.
UND is making its second appearance in the WBI after qualifying in 2011-12 due to its Great West Conference championship in the final year of transition to NCAA Division I status. North Dakota was the Big Sky Conference Tournament champion a season ago and earned the automatic berth in the NCAA Division I Tournament, the first in program history.
“We’re very excited about this opportunity for our basketball program,” UND head coach Travis Brewster said. “It’s nice to know our body of work early in the season allowed this opportunity and now we need to take care of business.”
The opening round for UND will come at host University of New Mexico against the Lobos. Game time is set for 8:00 p.m. Central on Wednesday.
