WKU To Host Opening Round of Women’s Preseason Basketball Tourney
Fresh off an NCAA postseason appearance, the WKU women’s basketball team is looking forward to another tournament. The school announced Thursday that Diddle Arena will serve as a host site for the opening round of the women’s preseason NIT tournament in November.
“Not only being in the tournament, but having the chance to be one of the few schools to host is a sign of the national respect that our program has garnered in the women’s basketball world,” said WKU head coach Michelle Clark-Heard. “I am so excited for our team and our fan base to have the chance to have this event in E.A. Diddle Arena.”
The Lady Toppers have a 6-3 record all time in the preseason NIT tournament, which began in its current form in 1994.
The WNIT preseason tournament begins November 14th.
