Boise State To Face Washington — NIT

Boise State To Face Washington — NIT

The University of Louisville women's basketball team is a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

"They send the invite, and you have to do it in parallel, that if you do fall to the NIT, that you will indeed accept the bid", he said.

The victor of the game between MSU and Nebraska will play the victor of the game between No. 1 seed Baylor and No. 8 seed Wagner in a second-round game Saturday or Monday. "Nebraska's had some fine wins in their league". During the NIT selection show, which appeared earlier this evening on ESPNU, it was revealed that the 23-9 Seahawks, guided by now two-time NEC Coach of the Year Bashir Mason, are the No. 8 seed in the Lower Left Bracket of the NIT bracket.

"When all those brackets were going by and we weren't seeing our name, it was kind of getting a little nerve-wracking", Williams said.

Morgan wouldn't comment on why the tournament is being hosted at the Al McGuire versus BMO Harris. That's when the ESPN projections added the Huskers as the very last team in the NCAA Tournament. "If we just go with things as they are, that they think we're the 17th-to-21st-best team or whatever it is, and there's 16 teams ahead of us, I'd have a real problem with the committee on that", Miles said.

Howland said Weatherspoon's neck area is fine and that he doesn't have a fracture in his hip.

Nebraska's only other NCAA Tournament appearance in the state of Texas was a successful one. 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.

Then, on Sunday, Nebraska wasn't on the NCAA's eight-team list of teams battling for the final four spot. The Broncs qualified via the MAAC regular-season title.

"I guess it is a test of whether you really love basketball or not", UO sophomore guard Payton Pritchard said. They were a part of a weak Big Ten and didn't have many impressive wins throughout the regular season. "Our fans and the whole city has so supportive and their energy has helped us in many games already this year and we're excited to give them another chance to see us play at home", added Hopkins.

With Cain in the middle and a commitment to defense for the entire Nebraska team, the Huskers improved by 13 points defensively from a year ago, allowing just 63.3 points per game this season.
