The Women’s National Invitation Tournament released its full 64-team field for the Postseason WNIT. It includes 31 teams that earned an automatic berth and 33 teams chosen at-large. The field also has 36 teams with 20 or more wins

The tournament features five teams from the Atlantic 10, Conference USA, and Mid-American and four from both the Big West and Southeastern. The Big Sky, Colonial, Missouri Valley, Sunbelt, and West Coast will all have three schools in the field. Other conferences represented include the America East (2), Big 10 (2), Mountain West (2), Pacific 12 (2), Southern (2), Atlantic Coast (1), Atlantic Sun (1), Big 12 (1), Big East (1), Big South (1), Horizon (1), Ivy (1), MAAC (1), MEAC (1), Northeastern (1), Ohio Valley (1), Patriot (1), Southland (1), Summit (1), SWAC (1), and WAC (1).

The Postseason WNIT opens with first-round games Wednesday through Friday, March 20-22. The second round runs March 23-25, round three March 27-29, quarterfinals March 30-April 1, and semifinals April 3-4. The championship game is Saturday, April 6 and will be broadcast live on CBS Sports Network. Participating schools host all games.

Selection process

Tournament officials award an automatic qualifying berth to 29 conferences. The auto bids go to teams that finished the highest in the regular-season conference standings that did not advance to the NCAA Tournament. If there were ties, the WNIT made a decision according to the conference tiebreaker. A team earns the automatic qualifying berth regardless of its overall record. A total of 35 teams were then given an at-large selection. A team must have an overall record of .500 or better to be considered.
