UW Huskies will open NIT play at home against Boise State

He sat down behind a table, just minutes after learning that not only had his Nebraska team been left out of the NCAA Tournament, but also that they were No. 5 seed in the NIT. On Sunday, the Huskies learned they'll play Boise State in the first round of the tournament.

Washington is 8-1 lifetime against Boise State, but the teams haven't played in 19 years. The 2017-18 Seahawks reached the 20-win plateau for the eighth time in program history and second in the last three seasons.

Perhaps even worse than the Cornhuskers getting the fifth seed and not getting a game in Lincoln is that Penn State got a four seed. While the Broncos are the higher seed they are not able to host the Huskies since Taco Bell Arena is being used for the NCAA opening rounds.

Should Washington advance, the Dawgs will take on the victor of No. 1 Saint Mary's (Calif.)/No. 8 Southeastern Louisiana.

The No. 1 seed in the Spokane Regional is Notre Dame.

The Louisville men's basketball team is scheduled to host Northern Kentucky in the first round of the NIT tournament on Tuesday night.

In this preview, I will give a general overview and notes about the NIT, highlight some of the favorites to cut down the nets in Madison Square Garden, and analyze some sleeper teams and key players to watch.


Nebraska's game against the Sun Devils (21-12, 10-8 Pac-12) will be the eighth all-time meeting between the Huskers and Arizona State.

Mississippi State is 22-10 and finished tied for seventh in the Southeastern Conference.

Nebraska has one of the biggest win-total improvements in the country from last season, and is now 21-10 overall, 11-5 in conference play. 2 Kansas in Kansas City, Mo. The Crimson won the conference's regular-season title to qualify.

Baylor and Wagner will tip off at 6 p.m. on Tuesday at the Ferrell Center. They had a tough Big East schedule facing some top teams Xavier twice and Villanova three times.

With a win, UW could play at No. 1 Saint Mary's (28-5) in the second round later this week. Overall this year, MSU is 22-11, it's most wins since having 21 in 2012.
