CBS College Sports Network will broadcast the Postseason Women’s National Invitation Tournament (WNIT) live on Saturday, April 4 at 2:00 p.m. ET. The game
will be broadcast nationally and played at the home site of one of the two WNIT
Championship teams.

“It’s exciting to partner with CBS College Sports for the WNIT championship,” WNIT executive director Brent Amick said. “The championship has a great history of tremendous crowds and atmosphere, and we are pleased to capture that on a nationally televised basis.”

Last year’s WNIT championship showcased Marquette at Michigan State. In the tournament’s 11 years, the title game has averaged nearly 11,000 fans in attendance each year. Past champions include Auburn, Kansas State, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

The Postseason WNIT features a 48-team field. The tournament offers 31 teams automatic berths – one per conference – and then selects 17 at-large teams. The WNIT began March 18 and culminates April 4. All games, including the final, are hosted by participating schools.
