2011 Women’s National Invitation Tournament

The 2011 Women’s National Invitation Tournament (WNIT) was an annual single-elimination tournament of 64 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I teams that were not selected to participate in the 2011 NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Tournament. The tournament was played entirely on campus sites. The highest ranked team in each conference that did not receive a bid to the NCAA Tournament received an automatic bid to this tournament. The remaining slots were filled by the WNIT Selection Committee. In the championship game, the Toledo Rockets defeated the USC Trojans, 76-68, before a sellout crowd of 7,301 at Savage Arena in Toledo, Ohio. Tournament MVP, Naama Shafir, scored a career-high 40 points to lead the Rockets [1]
