Round One Matchups and Times Announced for 2024 Postseason WNIT

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The UNC Greensboro (UNCG) women’s basketball team has been selected as an automatic qualifier to compete in the 2024 Postseason WNIT, sponsored by Triple Crown. The WNIT announced Monday that the Spartans will play their first-round game on the road at North Carolina A&T on Friday, March 22 at 7 p.m. in Corbett Sports Center in Greensboro, N.C.

This season’s WNIT selection is the second time UNCG women’s basketball has competed in the postseason tournament in program history. The Spartans last earned a spot in the WNIT back in the 2001-02 season when UNCG fell in a close battle with Virginia, 51-45.

The Spartans and Aggies last met in Fleming Gym in the 2020-21 season when UNCG came away with the 49-46 victory. UNCG holds the overall series record against N.C. A&T at 14-6.

UNCG comes into Friday’s contest with a 21-11 overall record after competing in The Southern Conference (SoCon) Championship, marking the seventh time in program history the Spartans have earned a spot in the SoCon Championship game.

The Aggies will welcome the Spartans on Friday with a 20-11 record on the season. N.C. A&T made it to the semifinal round of the 2024 Coastal Athletic Association (CAA) Women’s Basketball Tournament.

The winner of Friday’s contest will go on to play Old Dominion in the second round of the WNIT being held from March 23-26 with sites to be determined.
