NIT: Boise State To Face Washington

NIT: Boise State To Face Washington

Louisville players feel like they were snubbed from the NCAA Tournament after they went 20-13 and beat some quality opponents, and they apparently do not want to compete for the NIT title as a consolation prize. Throwing out the four No. 1 seeds, which were the first four teams out of the NCAA Tournament, the Huskers finished ahead of seven of the 12 NIT teams seeded ahead of them in both RPI and KenPom.

Washington is 8-1 lifetime against Boise State, but the teams haven't played in 19 years. The winners of the two first-round games will meet in Monday's second round. So, despite being the higher seeds it will be Washington who gets to host.

Baylor head coach Scott Drew said not making the NCAA Tournament field was a let down, but the Bears still have a chance to win a championship.

When the brackets for the NCAA basketball tournament are unveiled on the second Sunday in March, there are all sorts of heated disagreements about why this team got in and this one didn't.

Baylor learned its fate on Sunday and missed out on the NCAA tournament. We just went through the ACC Tournament and won three games in three days by a combined total of 10 points.

The Huskers will travel to Mississippi State to take on the fourth-seeded Bulldogs (22-11, 9-9 SEC).

The NIT semifinals will be at New York's Madison Square Garden on March 27.

UW pushed its non-conference record to 10-3 and surpassed its win total from last season.

The Huskies earned its first 20-win season since 2011-12 finishing with at 20-12.

It's understandable that the players are ready to move on from 2017-18, but they'll return to the court Thursday as a No. 2 seed opposite No. 7 Northern Kentucky.

The sold-out game starts at 6 p.m. Wednesday, and doors will open at 5 p.m. Notre Dame is the top seed in Oregon's eight-team sub-bracket.

SE Louisiana (22-11) at Saint Mary's (28-5), 7 p.m.

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

Even changing one of Nebraska's close losses to Kansas, Creighton or Ohio State to a win wouldn't appear to do much more than improve the Huskers' NIT seeding. Their only quadrant 1 victory of the season came against MI.
