Weber State women’s basketball enjoyed a resurgent season in 2015-16, finishing as the winningest women’s basketball team in school history. The Wildcats’ 23-12 record marked the first time since 2002-03 that WSU had a 20-win season.
The Wildcats advanced to the Big Sky tournament, beating Portland State in the opening round to earn their first conference tournament win since 2007.
Although the team suffered a heartbreaking, buzzer-beater loss to Idaho in the quarterfinal round of the championship, Weber State was invited to the Women’s Basketball Invitational (WBI), a national postseason tournament. The Wildcats mowed through New Mexico, North Dakota and the University of South Carolina Upstate in the WBI before losing the championship game to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in double overtime.
Big Sky Defensive Player of the Year Brittney Dunbar and All-Conference players Regina Okoye and Deeshyra Thomas led the Wildcats.
