Nebraska basketball gets second 'slap in the face' in NIT seeding

Nebraska basketball gets second 'slap in the face' in NIT seeding

"Which gave me some tears". "We've worked so hard".

The fifth-seeded Huskies will actually host the No. 4 Broncos at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Alaska Airlines Arena due to a scheduling conflict.

MSU backup center E.J. Datcher didn't play in either of the Bulldogs' two SEC Tournament games last weekend.

Notre Dame takes on Hampton, Baylor plays Wagner, and Saint Mary's faces Southeastern Louisiana in the first round.

That's no disrespect to the Sun Devils. "There's a lot of quality teams and great players in the field".

Some of that the teams feel directly as result of wins and losses, and some of it they feel indirectly based on what others teams are doing. They have a worse RPI.

Nebraska's lack of postseason success in the sport of basketball has been frustrating, as the Huskers have yet to win an NCAA Tournament game out of their seven tries. That left only the Big Ten Tournament for Nebraska to make a statement.

This is an opportunity we have to take, yes of course. "It increases the pressure on it even more, this competition". I think it is a good opportunity.

After getting knocked out of the Big Ten Tournament on March 2 by Michigan, Nebraska spent the next nine days practicing and preparing as if they would be in the field.

But ESPN made the Huskers "sweat it out", Williams said. They had a great year with some really big wins.

Nebraska must get over its disappointment quickly. We just didn't know what the league was going to look like coming in... They were very, very excited.

The University of Washington Men's Basketball Team earned a number five seed in the 2018 National Invitational Tournament and will host four-seed Boise State on Wednesday, March 14 at 7 p.m. NIT first- and second-round games, along with the quarterfinals, are held at the higher-seeded team.

With Cain in the middle and a commitment to defense for the entire Nebraska team, the Huskers improved by 13 points defensively from a year ago, allowing just 63.3 points per game this season. "We are Marquette", said Sobelman. When Williams was at South Dakota, she recruited Ibis, whose recruiting profile quickly soared above a mid-major program. When we are playing our best, we can beat anyone.

A sweep of California and key wins over Stanford, Oregon State and Buffalo - all four teams are in the NCAA tournament - helped seal ASU's at-large bid. "If we get on a roll and get to NY (for the tournament semifinals), hopefully, he could then come back some and help".
