Harvard, BC, Vermont get bids to NIT

Harvard, BC, Vermont get bids to NIT

It's a turnaround like few others in Nebraska athletics.

"Any chance you get to play quality opponents, it helped us six years ago", Altman said.

"They played some good non-conference games", Rasmussen said.

The Cardinals will play 16-seeded Boise State at noon on Friday at the KFC Yum! 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. The most notable win in those 13 games was an upset over then-No.

If Nebraska wins, Nebraska will play the victor of top-seeded Baylor against eighth-seeded Wagner in the second round.

There is a very good chance the Huskers don't see their name until the NIT selection show begins at 7 p.m. on ESPNU. We just didn't know what the league was going to look like coming in...

Most postseason forecasts project Washington will be a seeded between Nos. Wagner made its first NIT appearance in 1979, under the direction of three-time NBA Champion and Wagner Hall of Famer, P.J. Carlesimo, as the Seahawks fell to Old Dominion, 81-79, in the first round to complete the season with a 21-7 mark.

On Thursday, all over the world, women were celebrated, empowered, and supported on International Women's Day . The government must set a timeline for the Gender Equality Act to show firm commitment in enacting the law.

While March Madness will descend on Boise later this week as the capital city prepares to host the first and second round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, the Lady Broncos learned today they are headed back east. I am sure Bill Walton is not pleased, but maybe we will be fortunate enough to hear his rants while he calls some of these games.

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

The Huskers surged into NCAA contention during a stretch in January where they won five straight games, and they were all good ones, against Purdue, Rutgers, twice against Iowa and IL.

The Big Ten did get four teams in: No. 2 seed Purdue, No. 3 seeds Michigan and Michigan State, and No. 5 seed Ohio State.

The NIT will feature four rules modifications that are not the norm from what MSU and the rest of the field saw during the regular season.

"I'm still emotional about the whole thing", Miles said. Junior guard Quinndary Weatherspoon, who leads his team with a 14.8 scoring clip, was named second-team All-SEC, while his brother Nick was tabbed to the SEC All-Freshmen squad after averaging 11.1 points.
