Huskers get five seed in NIT


The game will be on ESPN2.

The Blue Jays are 18-12 and crashed out in the second round of the Big East Tournament.

MSU backup center E.J. Datcher didn't play in either of the Bulldogs' two SEC Tournament games last weekend. The 32-team bracket is split into four groups of eight seeded No. 1 through No. 8.

Nebraska (22-10) at Mississippi State (22-11), 6 p.m. Considering NU's fourth-place finish in the Big Ten, those could be much better draws than in year's past.

The Huskers finished fourth in the Big Ten with a 13-5 record before losing to eventual tournament champion MI in the Big Ten Quarterfinals on March 2.

Lindsey said he is excited to play under these revised rules, but that shouldn't change the outcome of games.

UNC Asheville (21-12) at Southern Cal (23-11), 8 p.m.

After missing out on the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2013, the Baylor Bears are NIT bound.

Inside, freshman Kate Cain has made a major impact at both ends of the court for the Big Red.

The game that would draw the most interest would be a matchup between Washington (20-12) and Syracuse (20-13) - an early reunion between first-year UW coach Mike Hopkins and his mentor, Jim Boeheim. So George Washington got the conference's automatic bid, but Dayton still had a good record, was going to get in, and had just taken up one more spot for a team on the edge of getting in. The Huskers were 4-7 in the regular season when playing on the road.

In that exhibition game on October 22nd, Mississippi State fell to Nebraska in a closely contested game.

The Washington-Boise State victor will play the victor of the game between Saint Mary's and Southeastern Louisiana. "It is what it is; we can still do something about it", said Head Coach Tim Miles after learning the Huskers were left out of the NCAA tournament on Selection Sunday. In 2013, the sixth-seeded Huskers went to College Station, Texas and defeated 11th-seeded Chattanooga (73-59) before knocking off third-seeded Texas A&M (74-63) at Reed Arena to advance to the second NCAA Sweet Sixteen in Husker history.

If Nebraska's that far out, expect the Huskers will want some explanations.
