I doubt. I think this tournament is usually setup in two divisions. 4 teams per division. Usually two P5s and Two mid majors. So we will likely play Louisville Texas or UCLA and then one of the mid major schools
Exciting field. Even the mid majors are dood programs. Doubt we play Texas there given are annual meeting at alternating home sites.

Trivia perhaps, the South Dakota jackrabbits played in the WNIT because they lost their conference final to rival SD. The 'rabbits won the six games necessary to become the champs. They played all six games at home, UCLA came to the Dakotas to play and lost. Probably room rates were cheaper in their than LA.

I enjoy watching them play at the precision of the half court offense, Princeton also and it demonstrates the advantages of execution when the team is not as athletic or quick.

SC and UConn played against one another in this tournament last fall and they play each other annually.

Good find. I guess they make exceptions, but the general rule of thumb over many years for both women's and men's basketball is to play teams you wouldn't normally play. I imagine they will match us up with one top team and one relatively lower team, so to me it would be preferable to finally play Louisville given our match with Texas is almost always just a few weeks after these Thanksgiving tournaments.

One issue is how many courts (or in some locations stages expanded to play basketball) or there in such a tourney and how many spectators can attend? Some of the exotic places don't have adequate facilities for hard-core fans who would want to attend more than their favorite team.
