West Virginia Women’s Basketball Declines Invite to WNIT

Published

on

The West Virginia women’s basketball team has declined their invitation to the Women’s National Invitation Tournament.

“While we appreciate the invitation for our women’s basketball team to participate in the 2022 WNIT, we have made the difficult decision to decline the invite this year,” West Virginia director of athletics Shane Lyons said in the press release. “Team injuries, along with student-athletes set to enter the transfer portal, have limited our roster availability, and we would not be able to provide a competitive or positive experience for our student-athletes.”

Declining the invite means that West Virginia will finish the season with a 15-15 overall record and a 7-11 conference record. They finished in seventh in the regular season conference standings and fell to No. 10 Iowa State in the Big 12 quarterfinals this past Friday. All six of the teams that finished ahead of West Virginia in the conference made the Women’s NCAA Tournament.
