Wahine Denied NCAA Tournament Bid But Head To NIT

As for the Rainbow Wahine, they missed they're chance at the automatic berth to the women's NCAA tournament. Hawaii lost to Louisiana Tech for the WAC title, so the Lady Techsters got the free trip to the dance.

The Wahine had to wait and see if the selection committee would pick them, but it didn't happen. Hawaii gets snubbed for the second year in a row. This after posting a 23 and 7 record for the season. And 5 of those losses came against top 25 ranked teams.

Instead, Hawaii will make a repeat appearance at the women's National Invitation Tournament. Those teams were announced about 4 hours after the women's selections were done for the NCAA tournament. They'll face Oregon State in Corvallis, Oregon. That game is scheduled for this coming Thursday.
