The Women’s National Invitation Tournament is an annual invitation-only tournament involving 16 of the nation’s top women’s Division I basketball teams. A team may participate no more than once in a four-year period.
Additionally, only one institution per conference may play in the tournament in the same year. Teams are selected for the Preseason WNIT based on their program’s expected success for that season, their relevant past, their conference standings, fan base, and geographical location. The teams that compete well in the Preseason WNIT typically go on to finish very strong and advance to postseason play.
