Nebraska to play in NIT, Drake in the CIT

Boise State women get 16th seed, headed to Kentucky

When Mississippi State tips off against Nebraska on Wednesday night at Humphrey Coliseum in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament, It will quite literally be a different kind of game for the Bulldogs.

It's a turnaround like few others in Nebraska athletics. However, they'll be coming down to Starkville to play.

In my opinion, Oklahoma State was the biggest snub.

It's not unusual for the NCAA to use the NIT to test out potential longterm college basketball rules adjustments. 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.

There was hope among the Huskers that the team had done enough to, at the very least, earn a top-three seed in the NIT, if not sneak into the NCAA Tournament. The Cornhuskers finished 22-10 and 13-5 in Big Ten Conference play. The Huskers were the NIT champions in 1996.

Most postseason forecasts project Washington will be a seeded between Nos. 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.

This will be Oregon's 11th NIT appearance, and first since 2012.

"It's just so special", Wood said. This despite the fact that they lost the NCAA tournament one seed Kansas by a point.

The Courier Journal reported Monday that Louisville players had initially voted before the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament against playing in the NIT if they didn't receive an NCAA bid. Palmer was a first-team All-Big Ten pick by the conference coaches, as he averaged 17.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. However, that won't be the end of Mississippi State's season.

This year's squad is heading to Louisville on a much lower note than the 2016 squad, who had just beaten DePaul to capture the program's first-ever BIG EAST Tournament title.

"I guess it is a test of whether you really love basketball or not", UO sophomore guard Payton Pritchard said. Nebraska had good wins against Purdue and Rutgers. It was after that when Nebraska coach Amy Williams started to feel like the Huskers had done what they needed to.

OSU is led by senior Marie Gulich, who averages 17.1 points, 8.9 rebounds and almost three blocks per game.
