So your team didn't make March Madness and is instead in something called the National Invitational Tournament. The NU-ASU game will be televised on ESPN2.

"They played some good nonconference games", Rasmussen said on the NCAA Selection show on TBS.

What frustrates me is seeing how many mediocre teams (mainly from the Big 12) made it into the dance, but Nebraska wasn't even considered.

Life on the edge of getting in the NCAA Tournament can be an up-and-down affair that can give you an exciting feeling one moment, and a bad feeling the next. They beat five opponents inside the RPI Top 50.

As of a week ago, the Huskies were trying to sneak into the NCAA Tournament.

The NIT is experimenting with rule changes that could be used in the future for all NCAA basketball games.

"Any opportunity to play basketball is a blessing", Lindsey said. But their confidence grew as the season wore on, and a team without superstars, Williams said, built great chemistry. "At the end of the day though, they've had a lot of success and we've had some of our own".

The Huskers went 22-10 this season, including a 13-5 record in the Big Ten, but they didn't really have any big wins.

This is the 11th time in program history and the first time since 2013 that the Wildcats are headed to the NCAA Tournament . However the Buckeyes tournament stay didn't last long, losing to the Penn State Nittany Lions in the quarterfinals.


The Broncos, entering the tournament on a 10-game winning streak.

The Huskers were left out due to a combination of lack of quadrant one wins and a down year for the Big 10 becoming the first team in conference history to be left out with more than 21 wins. "If we get on a roll and get to NY (for the tournament semifinals), hopefully, he could then come back some and help". However, also like Mississippi State, Nebraska struggled away from their home court.

"This is a Big Ten team in name only and I think the committee is smart enough to see that", ESPN's Joe Lunardi said last week.

Now, it's entirely possible the Louisville players decided after their tourney loss to Virginia that they'd like to get some more playing time together. Boise State's venue, the Taco Bell Arena, is hosting first-and second-round NCAA Tournament games.

"It's going to be another great environment for our fans to come out and support what we're doing with the program here".

OR had been in the NCAA field for five straight seasons since losing to Washington in 2012.
