Game time is TBA.

Seattle University was also selected to play in the WNIT. Seattle plays at St. Mary’s on Thursday. Game time is TBA.

The Dawgs were selected to the WNIT for the second straight season. A year ago, Washington made a run in the WNIT, winning three games to advance to the quarterfinals. The Huskies earned wins over Cal Poly, Utah and Oregon State, before falling at the hands of San Diego.

The Eagles finished the regular season with a record of 19-12 and were knocked out of the Big Sky Tournament by Northern Colorado in the second round.

Washington is making its fifth appearance in the WNIT. The Dawgs are 7-4 in the four tournaments they have played so far. Washington debuted in the WNIT in 1999, while also appearing in 2002, 2004 and last season. The Dawgs are 4-0 in the first round of the tournament.
