After earning a No. 4 seed and an at-large bid to the inaugural Women’s Basketball Invitation Tournament, the Illini began their tournament run with a come-from-behind win over Missouri State at State Farm Center on March 21. Illinois trailed by as many as 11 but bounced back in the second half to secure a 74-69 first-round win over the Lady Bears.
The Illini then took on Stony Brook, which entered the contest with only two road losses on the season. The Orange and Blue never trailed and advanced to the quarterfinals in dominant fashion, clinching a 79-62 victory on March 24 to earn a spot among the final eight teams in the competition.

Illinois then played its first road game of the tournament, traveling to take on a [3] Tulsa team that had only lost once on its home court all season. That did not faze the Illini, though, as they led by as many as 16 and booked its spot in the WBIT semifinals in Indianapolis with a 69-61 road win over the Golden Hurricane on Thursday night.

Making the quick trip to Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis for the WBIT semifinals, Illinois took on a Washington State team that had earned a No. 1 seed in the competition.
