Huskers to Meet Mississippi State Wednesday in NIT First Round

What's the next step for UW? The NIT and a chance for the Huskies to “get better”

What's the next step for UW? The NIT and a chance for the Huskies to “get better”

Wagner (23-9) at Baylor (18-14), 4 p.m.

Whatever the reason, there's going to be a whole bunch of howling.

"I'm just so incredibly happy for this team", Williams said. "The truth is, there is no case".

Since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, 304 of 306 teams to win at least 13 league games in a power conference through the 2016-17 season made the tournament. BSU, despite getting a bye, fell in its only conference tournament game, 78-75, to Utah State. This just isn't the postseason scenario most Huskies fans had in mind as of a month ago. The two programs have not met since December 23, 1999. The Dawgs also posted their biggest jump (eight wins more) in conference play in program history as they went from 2-16 to 10-8. Baylor is No. 4 in the RPI this season, with a record of 31-1.

The most interesting part of that is when looking at the teams the site has projected as an 11 seed, NU has nearly the best odds of the bunch.

There is another situation that may prompt even more howling than the exclusion of Nebraska.

In my opinion, Oklahoma State was the biggest snub.

The games will be divided into four 10-minute quarters as opposed to two 20-minute halves. But Lunardi has the Sooners in the NCAA field and not the Cowboys.

Kind of takes some of the fun out of it, doesn't it? UW and OSU were 1-1 with both games being decided by three points or fewer. (Eastern) on ESPN 2. Nebraska's one quality win this season came against the Wolverines, but MI came right back and smacked the Huskers in the mouth in NY a few weeks ago in the conference tournament. The players reportedly voted on the NIT before the ACC Tournament and held a players-only meeting after they were left out of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday night, though it's unclear what was discussed at the meeting.

The Cardinals lost their Hall of Fame coach, Rick Pitino, to a recruiting scandal before the season began.

Unfortunately, some people don't see it that way. The Redbirds have played in the NIT in six of the last 11 years while also competing in the CBI in 2014. Is that really part of the job description? Exact dates and times will be revealed later tonight.

If he doesn't, it won't because of his 40 time.

Creighton is seeded 11th, and will play sixth-seeded Iowa on Saturday in Los Angeles.
