Dawgs set for postseason basketball, open NIT against Boise State

Dawgs set for postseason basketball, open NIT against Boise State

After missing out on the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2013, the Baylor Bears are NIT bound.

OR was given a No. 3 seed to the 2018 National Invitation Tournament and will face sixth-seeded Rider Tuesday at 7 p.m.in the opening round at Matthew Knight Arena. The NU-ASU game will be televised on ESPN2.

Washington lost six of its last nine games of the season, falling from a potential No. 9 or 10 seed in the NCAA tournament to the outside looking in. Arizona State also is in a First Four game, facing Syracuse at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Dayton.

The two teams haven't met since December 23, 1999, when Washington picked up a 72-57 victory in Seattle.

The Huskers had to wait until the last four of the 64-team bracket popped up on ESPN's screen.

The Nebraska women's basketball team had a few chances, but never got the really, really big win this season, like one against Maryland would have been. Nebraska produced an eight-game improvement in league play (3-13, 2016-17).

Oregon's star sophomore, who was the Pac-12 player of the year and conference tournament most outstanding player, was named a first-team all-American by USA Today and ESPN.


Senior forward and National Basketball Association prospect Chandler Hutchison does just about everything for his Boise State squad, leading the team in points (19.3 PPG), rebounds (7.5 RPG), and assists (3.5 APG).

It's hard to blame the Louisville players for wishing for an end to the season they just experienced.

Nebraska is going to the NIT instead - but as a low seed. The Huskers led the Big Ten in both field goal percentage defense (.371) and three-point field goal percentage defense (.302) in 2017-18. It was the Ducks' first loss in four home games this season.

After a devastating home loss to Oregon to finish the season, Washington was outmatched by Oregon State for the second time of the year in the opening round of the Pac-12 tourney.

The Beavers took the series though with a win on Saturday 6-4 and another 6-4 win on Sunday. If the Irish win, they will play either eighth-seeded South Dakota State or ninth-seeded Villanova on Sunday.

Kissinger's sister, Brooke, is also in the NCAA Tournament playing for Creighton. They are a No. 7 seed and will open the tournament at second-seeded Marquette. Omaha Benson graduate Kianna Ibis is the leading scorer for Arizona State. With another year of college hoops in the books and the Huskers not in the big dance, I chose to take a trip back through time and recount all of the seasons in which Nebraska made it into the tournament.
