Nebraska to play Mississippi State in the NIT tournament

Nebraska to play Mississippi State in the NIT tournament

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.

The 2018 NIT is the 25th postseason appearance in school history and 18th time NU has been selected for the NIT.

No. 4-seeded Mississippi State is 22-11 and went 9-9 in the Southeastern Conference this season.

The Big Ten did get four teams in: No. 2 seed Purdue, No. 3 seeds Michigan and Michigan State, and No. 5 seed Ohio State.

Washington is 8-1 lifetime against Boise State, but the teams haven't played in 19 years. This is the first time the teams have officially met since December 23, 1999, according to UW. They'll likely be playing in the NIT though, if that does anything for you. "They're very talented, we already know that have obviously having played them once and they had a fine year". "Obviously we're disappointed it's not the NCAA Tournament but the NIT is a great tournament". 25 Arizona State and then-No. When Marquette was more of a sure bet to make the tournament in 2016-'17, players celebrated with fans in the Union Sports Annex, a campus sports bar where tourney-bound Marquette teams tend to hold viewing parties.

This season, the Huskers posted a 22-10 overall record, a 13-5 conference mark, a tie for fourth place in the 14-team Big Ten and a 9½-game improvement over past year.

We have eight matches still to play and 24 points to play for (in the Premier League). He's a player we trust. 'I am really pleased with everything.

PSU (0-9 overall, 0-5 in the Big Sky) got wins at Nos.

In my opinion, Oklahoma State was the biggest snub. He has averaged 2.4 points and 1.8 rebounds per contest. The Longhorns advanced to the Big 12 Championship Game, while the Black Bears earned the America East automatic bid by winning the tournament title.

The regular season was fun, but at the end of the day, Nebraska was not worthy of partaking in this year's tournament.

UW pushed its non-conference record to 10-3 and surpassed its win total from last season.

Maybe more importantly, Nebraska didn't capitalize on the few opportunities for ever-important Quadrant 1 wins it did have.

Both the Huskers and Bluejays are in the Kansas City Regional. That pushed their record to 17-6.
