Women will play in WNIT

by Dave Morus

After being snubbed - the only team with a top 40 RPI to miss the dance -the Duquesne women will regroup and play host to the Zips of Akron in the first round of the WNIT this Thursday, with the time to be announced. They join fellow conference members Butler, Charlotte, Fordham, and Richmond in the tournament.

At the time of this writing, full brackets had not been announced. However, you can now find the bracket here.

The Zips finished 23-9 (12-4) this year. The only ranked opponent that they played, Dayton, crushed them 90-59. It is worth noting that the Zips narrowly lost to Saint Francis (PA), whom the Dukes beat rather handily.

Should the Dukes win, they will play the winner of the Bowling Green/Southern Methodist game. GoDuquesne says that ticket information will be up shortly. I'd take the obvious guess of "tomorrow."

Updates will be posted here as they come in. Go Dukes!
