Tulane lands home matchup in WNIT

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Tulane women's basketball team's early exit from the Conference USA tournament didn't keep it from finding a postseason home.

The Green Wave will host Sam Houston State in the first round of the Women's National Invitation Tournament at 7 p.m. Thursday in Devlin Fieldhouse. It's the fourth straight season Tulane has reached the postseason and third WNIT trip in as many years.

Tulane (22-8) was bounced from the quarterfinals of the C-USA tournament by host Tulsa on Thursday. Sam Houston State (18-14) earned an automatic WNIT bid by scoring a share of the Southland Conference regular-season title.

Thursday's winner advances to the round of 16 and a matchup with Arkansas or Memphis. The Green Wave beat Memphis 72-62 on Jan. 20 at Devlin Fieldhouse.

But a game three loss to the previously winless Brother Martin Crusaders, leaves the Tigers with more questions than answers.  "Friday night kind of stunned us. We knew the games coming into the beginning of the year with Ehret, Brother Martin, Destrehan,in a row like this. We've played well, other than Friday night. We did not play a good football game," said Hahnville Head Coach Nick S...
