The McNeese women's basketball team thought they finished their season but then they were invited to the WBI tournament.  The girls also received a first round home game.

The McNeese Women were bounced out of the first round of the Southland Conference tournament last week losing 70-68 to Houston Baptist.  Now the Cowgirls have new life with a chance to win a big tournament.

A couple of years ago, the women's team made it all the way to the finals of the WBI tournament.

McNeese will host Furman this Thursday, March 19th at 7 p.m. at the Lake Charles Civic Center here in Lake Charles.  Sports information director Matt Bonnette says tickets for McNeese State’s Women’s Basketball Invitational Tournament first round home game against Furman are now on sale for just $7 and can be purchased at the McNeese ticket office, online at ticketmaster.com, or at the Lake Charles Civic Center box office.
