The Creighton women’s basketball team accepted an invite into the Women’s NIT for the third straight year and the sixth time in the last eight years when it will host to Stephen F. Austin Friday night at D.J. Sokol Arena.
For the second straight season, Creighton (20-10) finished second in the Missouri Valley Conference regular-and as the MVC Tournament runner-up, losing 54-53 to Northern Iowa in the championship game. UNI scored the final nine points of the game.
Stephen F. Austin is 18-10 on the season. The winner of the CU-SFA game will advance to play the winner of Prairie View A&M’s game at Kansas, which takes place on Wednesday. The second-round game site and time will be determined after first round results are known.
