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.
