After a morning full of chatter that the Seattle University Redhawks would be invited to join the Western Athletic Conference, a press release this lunch hour all but confirms the big news for the program entering its third academic year in NCAA Division I athletics.
Seattle University will be hosting a press conference to make a major announcement regarding the future of the Seattle U athletics department.
Seattle Times reporter Bob Condotta tweeted soon after the press release that sources tell the Times that indeed the "major announcement" is about their response to the WAC invite, which they are expected to accept.
Condotta has also elaborated on the invite at the Seattle Times website.
