RUSTON – After winning the West Division of Conference USA and falling just short in the C-USA Tournament final, Louisiana Tech will host Houston Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Thomas Assembly Center in the opening round of the 2022 Women’s National Invitational Tournament.

“We are so excited to get an opportunity to play another game in front of our fans,” said Tech head coach Brooke Stoehr. “Our team has earned the opportunity to play in postseason and to get a chance to do it at home makes it that much better. We will be playing a talented Houston team, and we need a great crowd here to help make this a home court advantage.”

The Techsters are 21-11, their best record in over a decade.

Houston, a member of the American Athletic Conference, is 16-15 and lost in the American Athletic Conference semifinals to eventual champion South Florida. The Cougars drew an at-large invitation to the WNIT.

The WNIT field is comprised of 64 teams, including Tech’s fellow Conference USA members North Texas, Middle Tennessee, and Old Dominion.
