McNeese Women's Basketball departing today, as they get set for their Women's Basketball Invitational Opener against Northern Kentucky, Thursday at 6. 

The Cowgirls, the No. 6 seed in the West Region, are one of 16 teams selected to the field and will play the winner out of No. 2 seed College of Charleston and 7th-seeded USC Upstate game on Saturday should they advance to the next round.  A possible matchup with 4th-seeded Stephen F.
