UC Davis will continue its season in the WNIT as the club travels to Salt Lake City for a matchup against Utah on Friday.
The Aggies (23-7) earned an automatic berth in the WNIT by virtue of its Big West regular season title. The Aggies fell in the Big West Tournament semifinals to UC Santa Barbara, ensuring a WNIT berth if the club did not gain selection into the NCAA Tournament. UCD is returning to the postseason for the first time since 2012, which was also a WNIT appearance, and has gained entry in the WNIT for the fourth time overall.
Utah (16-14) is an at-large entry into the WNIT out of the Pac-12 Conference. The Utes are coached by Lynne Roberts who was the head coach at former member Pacific from 2006-13. The club also has played Big West schools in the WNIT in recent years, having played Long Beach State and Pacific back in 2013.
