Huskers to Meet Mississippi State Wednesday in NIT First Round

The article will conclude with my predictions for the NIT Tournament.

The Huskies are aiming for their 12th national championship. This is UW's first NIT appearance since the 2015-16 season. The invitation to the big dance never came, but Louisville administrators said yes to the NIT berth (and an extra home date) anyway.

A'Shanti Coleman's buzzer-beating putback against Nevada on Friday gave the Broncos a 62-60 victory in the Mountain West Tournament championship game, pushing their win streak to 10 games.

"I really do feel like we got slapped in the face", Miles said Sunday night.

The Irish strung together a 20-win season, and hung tough despite not having All-American forward Bonzie Colson for 13 ACC games, due to injury.

Most projections have the Huskies as either a fourth or fifth seed and that in itself comes with a little bit of drama.

Bear in mind that no team that won 13 games in a major conference ever has been left out of the tournament since the field was expanded to 64 teams in 1985.

The NIT has four brackets, each seeded 1-8. The March 27 semifinals and March 29 championship game will be held at Madison Square Garden in NY.

Geno Auriemma's squad, who fell in the Final Four a year ago, enters with a ideal 32-0 record that includes victories over all of the top teams in women's basketball. That pushed their record to 17-6. "No senior wants to lose their last game on their home court". In the Atlantic-10 Conference Tournament, George Washington got a surprising win against Dayton. There was also a bit of momentum a few days prior.

Scouting Oregon: The Ducks are in the NIT one year after making a run to the Final Four. Thybulle was initially named to the all-defensive team and was later awarded the conference's defensive player of the year.

The Cards have also had their best start this year by winning 20 straight games, the longest in the program's history.

Sadly, that was where the excitement ended, as the Cornhuskers were blown out by MI in their first game of the conference tournament.

"I think we had the fewest opportunities to win, and we didn't win".

"Losing is the worst feeling on planet Earth", Hopkins said.

The Huskies top players are Jaylen Nowell and Noah Dickerson, both average 15 points per game and two others who aveage more than 10 points per game.
