The Troy Trojans women’s basketball team officially accepted an invitation to compete in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament (WNIT) later this month.

Troy accepted the invitation just one day after the Trojans lost to UT-Arlington in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament Championship. As the conference’s regular season champion, and tournament runner-up, Troy was the Sun Belt’s automatic qualifying team for the WNIT. This is the just the second time that the women’s team will have competed in the WNIT after losing to UAB in the first round in 2019.

“I can’t wait to lead this group of Trojan Warriors into the WNIT battle,” Troy coach Chanda Rigby said. “We have worked all year to try to achieve post-season success, and now, we have this great opportunity before us.”
