The WBB played like they were determined this season. Great Job! Beat the Huskers!

and if they were to beat the Huskers, they would likely face Drake in the second round. Odd. (or maybe that is par for the course. I haven't really paid much attention to the WNIT over the years)

I'm not familiar with the process, so does anyone know if the WNIT home sites are selected through a bid process? Just wondered how Drake could get a home game and yet UNI has to play on the road. If it is selection by bid, we probably figured no one would come to a game during spring break week.

The Hawkeyes ended up in the WNIT as well. Not to overlook Nebraska, but a rematch would be interesting. We're much better than we were in November, and Iowa is arguably worse. Keitel and Schonhardt were still recovering from injuries and nowhere near 100%, plus Johnson wasn't even dressing. Accordingly we sagged off them defensively and they torched us from outside. Their guard that shot 8-8 against us ended up getting benched later.

At least they're making travel easy, but it sucks this isn't a home game if true. Any idea when the next game will take place?

Time to pack the place for our women's team...they deserve it! Last time Drake came up they brought a bus load & it wasn't pretty.

This team played their hearts out in Nebraska last night and are another part of the UNI year of success. I sure hope there is a nice crowd at home for Saturday night's game.

Already bought my ticket for tomorrow's game. Gals need a BIG crowd! Drake brought a lot of fans for conference game. The team deserves LOTS of support - don't let Drake bring more fans than UNI!!

Took 40 3 point shots, made 12

Would rather not play Drake again, not that there's a choice. Would loved to have played Iowa, they are about as dis-functional as our mens team was in January.

Sharnae Lamar had 15 assists and only 1 turnover. not too shabby. That sets the UNI single-game record for assists, and she also claimed the UNI season record for assists as well.

SIU lost (on a Western Illinois buzzerbeater in overtime) in the WBI first round on Thurs. night.
Drake lost (obviously) to UNI in the WNIT secount round last night.
MSU lost to TAMU last night in the NCAA womens tourney.

That means UNI is the last MVC team playing in both WBB and MBB.

Went to the game last night, first time I've seen them play this season. Just a few questions. Can this team not drive the lane to score? It seems like they were tentative the whole game, staying outside launching 3s. Drake looked pretty fearless with their inside game. It also looks like they aren't aggressive in getting offensive or defensive rebounds, instead focusing on running back.

Lamar played a great game defensively too, getting those offensive charges called on her opponent.

Again, just my observations and wondering if that's the way the women have played all season, or does Drake provide matchup difficulties for them.

Looking forward to the next round, hopefully at the McCleod center.

UNI will face the winner of South Dakota @ Minnesota, which is about to tip off.

How the host schools are chosen
The host site for each game is selected by the WNIT committee based on several factors such as fan base, host bids, facility availability, tournament seed, travel constraints, etc. A team's desire or ability to host or not to host has absolutely no bearing on that team being chosen for the 64-team field.
I'm guessing that if Minny wins, UNI will travel up north. We might host if SoDak wins, but it looks like USD averaged a bit higher attendance than UNI, so it is possible they could have outbid, I dunno.

Weekly can drive it, but sometimes a good defender/defense just takes it away, as with Missouri State. Sorenson will drive a little bit. Maybe our best driver is Herzberg, who unfortunately was injured earlier in the season but will hopefully be back at 100% next fall.

But coach Warren's teams tend to be big on 3 point shooting, and this one is no exception. If both MW and AS are hitting we're tough to beat. Drake is an improving program (beat Iowa State and Wisconsin earlier this season) and are pretty physical, plus they've already seen us twice.

I thought with two wins UNI was in the Elite 8, but now I see the WNIT has a field of 64, so we are in the sweet 16. I was surprised by that.

Round 3 #WNIT update -- @SDCoyotesWBB will host @UNIPantherWBB on March 24, 7 p.m. CT.

USD plays in the DakotaDome, which is essentially a small version of the UNI-Dome. Probably has odd sightlines like the UNI-Dome did, which can make shooting a challenge sometimes.

UNI beat USD in Cedar Falls, 64-43 in mid-November, but the Yotes played that game without Summit League Player of the Year Nicole Seekamp (who had 18 pts and 14 assists against Minnesota today)

I should add that Lamar had great success driving against MSU, while Weekly and Sorenson had tough times just getting open looks. The Bears decided to pick their poison.

Why do we have to play at South Dakota? We beat them earlier in the year.
