The tournament bracket was announced today, with the Cowgirls opening against Santa Clara on December 19th. They’ll then play the winner/loser of South Florida vs Long Beach State. The full bracket includes South Florida, Long Beach State, New Mexico State, Quinnipiac, UNLV, and Oregon State. Counting OSU, that’s four teams that made the NCAA tournament last year, including Final Four team Oregon State.
The tournament comes right before the start of conference play, which should make it a good tune up for Jim Littel’s squad before Big 12 competition. The Play4Kay tournament runs December 19th - 21st.
