Huskies to host Boise State to open NIT on Wednesday

Not receiving an NCAA bid was another blow for the Cardinals, but Mahmoud said they're focusing on trying to win another tournament, albeit one with a lower profile than the Big Dance.

Nebraska and Creighton had to wait until almost the entire bracket was revealed, but both reached the NCAA women's basketball tournament.

"Any opportunity to play basketball is a blessing", Lindsey said.

They say $20 premium tickets are for sale in the premium boxes and terrace areas. "We're excited to host the first two at home against two very good basketball teams". The most notable win in those 13 games was an upset over then-No.

"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.

Nebraska travels to No. 4 seed Mississippi State for the first round of the NIT on Wednesday.

The Oregon Ducks, a year after playing in the Final Four, are headed to the NIT with their young team and a 22-12 season record.

After losing to Villanova in the quarterfinals of the BIG EAST Tournament Thursday, Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski said he believed his team had done enough to make March Madness. 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. They are a No. 4 seed and will host an opening round contest. "You just, what do you say?" The coach then watched the NIT show in his office. "No senior wants to lose their last game on their home court". That left only the Big Ten Tournament for Nebraska to make a statement. This is the first time the teams have officially met since December 23, 1999, according to UW.

According to officials with the University, more than $6,000 tickets have been sold for the first-round game of the Cards versus Northern Kentucky.

"This is a great opportunity for our team to continue to play more games, get more practices in and continue to grow in this system and culture we are putting into place here at Washington", Hopkins said in a statement released by UW. That year, the Bears won the championship, defeating Iowa in the title game. The only two that didn't were Washington and OR in the Pac-12 in 2011-12. "We look forward to tipping things off on Tuesday".

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.
