After earning a win over UT Martin on Wednesday in first round WNIT action, the Ole Miss women’s basketball team will host Georgia Tech on Sunday at Tad Smith Coliseum. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.

Georgia Tech earned a spot in the second round with a 69-47 win over Elon in Atlanta tonight. This will be the first meeting between the Rebels and Yellow Jackets on the hardwood.

Tickets for Sunday’s game will be available beginning on Friday. Tickets will be $6 for the general public for the first four rounds and will increase to $7 for the semifinals and finals should Ole Miss host those rounds. Ole Miss students will get in for free with their Ole Miss student ID for the first two rounds, while student tickets for the third round will be $4. Student tickets will be $5 for the semifinals and finals should Ole Miss host those rounds.

The 64-team tournament is a single-elimination event with all games played at sites of host schools. The WNIT is committed to offering deserved opportunities to women’s basketball programs, and the 2015 Postseason WNIT features a full 64-team bracket.

The field will consist of 32 automatic berths — one from each conference — and 32 at-large teams. The intention of the WNIT selection committee is to select the 32 best available at-large teams in the nation. At-large teams must have a .500 overall record or better to be considered.
