Nebraska Basketball does not make 2018 NCAA Tournament

Nebraska Basketball does not make 2018 NCAA Tournament

The Huskies are 7-8 all time in the NIT, but before they can ponder possible opponents they must first cope with the disappointment of missing the NCAA tournament for the sixth straight year. It is also the ninth time in school history UW (20-12) has reached The NIT. The Bulldogs' best showing was reaching the National Semifinals in 2007.

NU, already disappointed at getting shut out of the NCAA tournament, learned Sunday night that the consolation tournament sent it to Starkville, Mississippi - where it defeated Mississippi State 76-72 in an exhibition game on October 22 - as a No. 5 seed for a rematch with the Bulldogs (22-11).

Perhaps even worse than the Cornhuskers getting the fifth seed and not getting a game in Lincoln is that Penn State got a four seed.

Washington is 8-1 lifetime against Boise State, but the teams haven't played in 19 years. The Ducks are expected to host the first two rounds at Matthew Knight Arena, with the men's team working around that as necessary. Representatives with the Marquette University Ticket Office said they expect a full house - and by Monday afternoon, we learned Wednesday's game is sold out. And they'll get a chance to play at home, where they are 18-2. "Obviously we're disappointed it's not the NCAA Tournament but the NIT is a great tournament".

After spending most of the past couple months on the bubble, Nebraska was done in by a schedule that featured just six wins against teams with winning records and one win over a team in the NCAA Tournament field.

The Huskers last played March 3 when the team lost to Maryland in the Big Ten Tournament. Senior guard JoJo Cooper, a 2018 All-NEC First Team selection, dished out four assists and grabbed three rebounds in that contest as a sophomore while then-freshman guard Devin Liggeons logged a minute in the Seahawk win.

"He's the guy who's got all the scores, all the teams, all that".

UO fell to 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the Pac-12.

Harvard, Boston College, and Vermont accepted bids to the NIT and will open with road games in the tournament.

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