Lack of quality wins keeps Huskers out of NCAA Tournament

"We only had one loss to a non-tournament team and that was at Iowa State which, according to KenPom, is the second toughest place to play in the country".

The first three rounds are held at campus sites and in most cases the higher seed is the host.

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.

Tyra conceded that players have been through a lot emotionally with Pitino's preseason dismissal and being stripped of the 2013 NCAA championship last month as part of NCAA sanctions for an escort scandal.

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

Nebraska is ranked as a 10-seed.

Nebraska's game against the Sun Devils (21-12, 10-8 Pac-12) will be the eighth all-time meeting between the Huskers and Arizona State. This is the first time the teams have officially met since December 23, 1999, according to UW.

"(Teams like Nebraska, St. Mary's, and Middle Tennessee) played some great non-conference games, they just didn't win those games".

"I really do feel like we got slapped in the face", Miles said Sunday night. UW was 20-11 going into the Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas.

Once the Huskers (21-10 overall and 11-5 in the Big Ten) beat MI in the league tournament, they felt like they'd done more than enough to secure a bid.




The victor of the four-team bracket in Austin will advance to the Kansas City Regional, March 23-25.

Altman's last trip to the second-tier tournament came in 2012 when OR reached the quarterfinals before losing at Washington.

The Huskies and Beavers went into overtime but UW was without leading scorers Jaylen Nowell and Noah Dickerson due to foul trouble. But then Purdue got a huge win against Maryland, and Nebraska lost a game it could have won at Indiana.

UW hired Hopkins, a longtime Syracuse assistant, after it fired Lorenzo Romar following a 15-year tenure on Montlake. (22-9) on Thursday in the South Region at Dallas. Nebraska owns a 4-3 edge in the all-time series, including a 62-58 win over the Sun Devils in the last meeting between the two teams at the Bob Devaney Sports Center in Lincoln on December 28, 2008. 2 Kansas in Kansas City, Mo.

Instead, while NU's late-season schedule allowed the Huskers to pile up wins, it afforded no opportunities for signature victories.

UW broke its streak by beating Colorado but would fall to Stanford in Palo Alto, Calif. The regular season, preseason was these guys.

Student tickets will be available Monday at 6 p.m. This will be the first meeting between OR and Rider.

Harvard (18-13) at Marquette (19-13), 4 p.m.

Despite all of those things, Penn State is a four seed and is hosting the Temple Owls.

No. 4-seeded Mississippi State is 22-11 and went 9-9 in the Southeastern Conference this season.
