Women's NIT
I know that we're hoping for an NCAA At-Large, but I don't expect that the UAB Women will get an offer. Here's the scoop on the NIT.

"The bracket for the 2018 Postseason WNIT will be announced on the evening of March 12. The first round will kick off Wednesday, March 14, with the event culminating Saturday, March 31 with the championship."

"The WNIT understands many schools interested in hosting cannot hold their facilities for the entirety of the tournament, but if teams choose to hold one or two dates open in each round, along with the championship date, that helps those schools to be considered as host sites. Please note: A school’s ability and/or desire to host games in the Postseason WNIT has absolutely no bearing on being selected for the tournament.

Selecting Teams
The 2018 Postseason WNIT field will consist of 32 automatic berths – one from each conference – and 32 at-large teams. The intention of the WNIT Selection Committee is to select the 32 best available at-large teams in the nation.

Automatic Berths
A team offered an automatic berth by the WNIT shall be the team that is a.) the highest-finishing team in its conference’s regular-season standings, and b.) is not selected for the NCAA Tournament. A team that fulfills these qualities will earn the WNIT automatic berth for its respective conference, regardless of overall record."

Don't we meet both criteria?
