IU Bubble Burst, Women Selected for WNIT

Inside a private room at Coaches Bar and Grill, IU saw its NCAA Tournament hopes crash before its very eyes. Coach Felisha Legette-Jack and her players echoed the disappointment, but still have a lot to play for in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament (WNIT).

“We’re here for real and we’re here to make this thing better; and we will,” said coach Jack. “We will continue to grow, one recruit at a time.”

IU forward Amber Jackson echoed the same sentiments. “Our season isn’t over, you know. We’re blessed to play in the [W]NIT. You know, a lot of people say, ‘it’s not in the tournament for us,  . . .  we’re in it to win it.'”

The Hoosiers received a WNIT first-round bye. They will play the winner of Dayton vs. Oakland on Sunday, March 22 in Bloomington at 2 p.m.
