UCLA Selected to Postseason Women's NIT
The UCLA women's basketball team is headed to the Postseason Women's NIT, earning the Pac-12's automatic qualifying bid. The Postseason WNIT bracket and matchups will be announced on Monday, Mar. 14 by 11 a.m. PT.
This is the seventh consecutive season the Bruins have advanced to postseason play. UCLA was a NCAA Tournament participant in five-straight contested tournaments from 2016-21 and the WNIT champion in the program's first and only WNIT appearance in 2015.
The Bruins finished the regular season with a 14-12 record and a No. 41 NET ranking. After battling through injuries most of the season, UCLA won three of its last four games, including an 18-point win at then-No. 12 Arizona to snap the Wildcats' 16-game home winning streak. UCLA advanced to the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 Tournament, where they lost by three points to No. 2 seed Oregon.
UCLA is led by its pair of all-conference team members, Charisma Osborne and IImar'I Thomas. Osborne ranks third in the conference in scoring (16.4 average) and free throw percentage (86.3%) and fourth in three-point field goals made (54). Thomas ranks fifth in scoring (15.6 average) and is also fourth in field goal percentage (54.0%).
