After posting a 17-13, 6-10 SEC record, the Ole Miss women’s basketball team is back in the postseason accepting a bid to the 2017 postseason WNIT on Monday. The Rebels will take on Grambling out of the SWAC on Thursday at The Pavilion at Ole Miss.  Game time is set for 6 pm.

This will be Ole Miss’ 24th trip to the postseason and the first since an appearance in the WNIT in 2014-15. Ole Miss has played in the WNIT eight times and has a 4-6 all-time record, reaching the third round in both 2014-15 and 2008-09.Ole Miss enters the WNIT after a 67-59 second-round SEC Tournament loss to LSU, while Grambling enters with an 18-14 record.
Tickets will be available beginning on Tuesday March 17 at 8 a.m. CT. General Admission tickets will be $5 for the general public for the first two rounds and will increase for the semifinals and finals should Ole Miss host those rounds. Floor seat ticket holders will have the option to purchase their season ticket location for $20 by contacting the Ole Miss ticket office at 662-915-7167. Tickets will be available for purchase online at WBB.OlemissTix.com.
Ole Miss students will get in for free with their Ole Miss student ID for the first two rounds. Students can pick up their ticket at The Pavilion ticket office on gameday by showing their student ID.
Parking will be available in The Pavilion garage on a first-come, first-serve basis just like during the regular season and gates will open an hour before the game.
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 2017 Postseason WNIT features a full 64-team bracket.
First-round games will be held March 15-17 while the second round runs March 18-21. Round 3 is slated to begin March 22 and run through the 24th.  Round 4 is March 25-27 with the WNIT semifinals set for March 29-30.  
The WNIT Championship Game will be played at 3 p.m. ET on April 1 and air live on CBS Sports Network.  Thad Anderson (play-by-play) and Ceal Barry (analyst) will call the game.
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.
