LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Cowgirls are back in the Women's National Invitation Tournament.

Wyoming received and accepted a bid from the tournament on Monday evening.

The Cowgirls will host Seattle on Thursday in a first round game. The game time is set for 6:30 p.m.

The Cowgirls capped off the year with a 21-9 overall record and a 13-5 mark in the Mountain West to place second in the league. The 13 victories were the most conference wins in program history and it was the eighth time under head coach Joe Legerski with 20-plus wins in a season.

Wyoming will be playing in the WNIT for the sixth time during Legerski's tenure and the first since 2013.

Wyoming won the 2007 WNIT title.
