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

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

Nebraska is ranked as a 10-seed.

While I think it is the correct decision to give teams like Oklahoma and Arizona State NCAA Tournament berths for their strong early season resumes, the NIT should be under no such obligation to give Temple an NIT berth.

Not only too little to get into the NCAA Tournament.

The games will be divided into four 10-minute quarters as opposed to two 20-minute halves.

The Huskers are a No. 5 seed in the Baylor bracket and will travel to Mississippi State on Wednesday for their first round matchup. I think our team had a really good year, especially considering our youth.

On top of many firsts, the good news is that the Golden Eagles will have a packed house at The Al McGuire Center on Wednesday night. "This is a huge accomplishment for our program and we look forward to competing against top-level competition in the field". Typically, the higher seed hosts the first round game but due to Boise State hosting first and second rounds of the NCAA Championships, their arena is unavailable.

The Bulldogs and Cornhuskers played an exhibition game October 22 in Starkville.

Nebraska's metrics, even while holding the team down most of the season, didn't appear to jibe with the NIT seeding.

"My second team at Pittsburgh made the NIT and the following year we made the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA tournament", Howland said.

A subdued Miles was diplomatic in his assessment of Nebraska's position. The women's selection committee doesn't use the quadrant system like the men's selection committee did, but if it had, Williams' assistants told her Nebraska finished 7-6 in Quadrant 1 games. "We know it's an honor to be a No. 1 seed, no question about that. But that's the way it goes".

It's a turnaround like few others in Nebraska athletics.

They won nine road games.

Arizona State is 21-12 going into the NCAA Tournament and got into the postseason as a Pac-12 at-large team.

Singles winners for the Vikings: No. 1 Siena Peri in three sets, No. 2 Eszter Zador in straight sets, and No. 3 Alli Valk in three sets. On their final NCAA team sheet, the Huskers' RPI was 56, with an average RPI win of 180. If they win, the Bears will host the victor of Mississippi State and Nebraska.
