Gators to Host Wofford in Opening Round of Postseason WNIT

Florida women’s basketball will be hosting a game in the Postseason WNIT for the first time since March 18, 2011, when Wofford visits Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center for a 6 p.m. ET tip on Thursday, March 16.

Thursday’s opening-round matchup between the Gators (16-14, 5-11 SEC) and the Terriers (22-9, 10-4 SoCon) will be streamed live on SEC Network+ with Kyle Crooks and Brittany Davis on the call.

Making their ninth appearance in the WNIT, the Gators hold a 15-8 all-time mark, most recently advancing to the second round during the 2021 tournament. In the first round of the WNIT, the Orange & Blue holds a 5-3 mark.

Florida and the Terriers will meet for the third time in program history on Thursday, with UF winning the previous two matchups, including a 61-47 victory at the 2021 Preseason WNIT on Nov. 15, 2021. This season, Wofford holds a 22-9 mark and fell in the SoCon conference tournament championship after winning the regular season title.

With their selection to the WNIT, Florida has secured their third-consecutive postseason appearance after appearing in the 2021 Postseason WNIT and 2022 NCAA Tournament. Their selection marks the first time of qualifying for three-consecutive postseason tournaments since seven-straight postseason appearances from 2008-2014.

If the Gators advance out of the first round, they will meet the winner of Wake Forest and Morgan State on Saturday or Sunday.
