The Western Athletic Conference has held a postseason tournament to crown a women's basketball champion every year since 1991. At first the regular season champion hosted it but at its height, the tournament was held at larger urban venues. With the departure of the Mountain West Conference teams, the tournament returned to campus, with each game in the tournament being held in one campus venue, each year.

The winner of the WAC tournament is guaranteed a berth into the NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Championship every year.
