A couple of "in preparation for the WNIT semis" stories:

From Manny Navarro at the Miami Herald: Miami Hurricanes women's basketball team takes a breath before taking on Michigan: The Miami women are set on beating Michigan to keep their season alive, but that doesn't mean they can't also take time to reflect on how far they've come.

University of Miami women's basketball coaches don't usually deliver big-game speeches this late in March.

So, instead of talking more strategy after her team practiced Tuesday night, Katie Meier took a moment to reflect on just how far the Canes' journey in the Women's NIT has taken them.

"I said to them, 'Do you realize that after tonight, there will only be eight women's basketball teams still playing, and you guys are one of them?'" Meier said. "It's such a big honor. There's really nothing to say. It's been a great run."
