2006-07 WNIT First Round - Jonesboro, AR Arkansas State 59 ...............................Murray State 52 Second Round - Madison, WI Wisconsin 77....................................Arkansas State 45

The Arkansas State Red Wolves added to their lengthy history in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament following the 2006-07 season. Head Coach Brian Boyer and the Red Wolves accepted their eighth bid to play in the postseason classic. The Red Wolves opened play in the 2007 WNIT with a first round matchup against Murray State, landing a home game along with the bid. After disposing of the Racers 59-52, the Red Wolves traveled to Madison, Wisc., for a second round matchup with the Lady Badgers of Wisconsin. Wisconsin proved to be too much for ASU, defeating the Red Wolves 77-45. The Lady Badgers went on to finish as the tournament’s runner-up. In their previous trip to the WNIT, ASU reached the quarterfinals of the tournament, whipping SEC teams Mississippi State and Arkansas in the first two rounds to reach the quarterfinals. The Red Wolves rolled past Mississippi State 78-61 before almost 3,000 fans. Attendance more than tripled before the much-anticipated second round matchup with the Lady Razorbacks of Arkansas, as a Convocation Center-record crowd of 10,892 showed up to cheer on the Red Wolves to a 9884 victory over Arkansas. Forced to go on the road in the quarterfinals, the Red Wolves were eliminated 6652 at Iowa. The Red Wolves’ history in the WNIT includes two trips to the tournament finals and one to the semifinals. ASU reached the tournament semifinals in 1992, defeating Nebraska 81-70 in the third-place consolation game. The next season, ASU won the tournament, defeating SMU 67-54 in the finals to claim the 1992-93 championship. ASU returned to the finals following the 1993-94 season, dropping a 69-64 decision to Oklahoma.
