includes ‘holiday tournaments in Vancouver and New York. Houston will face a stacked schedule with teams such as Stanford, Texas A&M, Syracuse, Minnesota and Mississippi State, all of whom played in the either the WNIT or NCAA Tournament this past season. The schedule also features four squads that finished the season in the top-25 of the NCAA Women’s basketball RPI.’
Minnesota, Mississippi State, Stanford and Syracuse are in the Vancouver Showcase. Coogs will face 1 of them in the opening round of the Showcase.
Hughey continues to go with the tough schedules. Hope it works out this year and the team can pull some of the close ones out.
In addition to Mississippi State, Stanford and Syracuse, the eight-team tournament field will include Bowling Green, Cal Baptist, Green Bay, Houston and San Francisco. The event will feature four games per day for each of the three days.
“Our teams and their fans will absolutely fall in love with Victoria and all it has to offer,” added Munro. “From the Butchart Gardens to the original Chinatown, from Victoria’s British roots to its stunning whale watching tours, this tournament will provide a unique experience for these teams, their friends, family and fans alike.”
Tournament pairings and public ticket sales will be announced at a later date. Event info can be found at www.VictoriaInvitational.com and on social media at @VictoriaInvBC.
