CMU women's basketball to appear in 2016 Preseason WNIT for first time in program history


23rd time's the charm: The Lady Chippewas will compete in the preseason WNIT for the first time in program history. They will participate as the sole MAC representative, and play against 15 other rising programs from the various power and major conferences. The Central Michigan women's basketball squad surprised everyone last season and came within a last-second buzzer-beating field goal of advancing to the NCAA Tournament. CMU ended up playing in the 2016 WNIT as an at-large, losing to IUPUI at home in the first round.
