Lack of quality wins keeps Huskers out of NCAA Tournament

I think that's the good news.

It was announced during the NCAA Tournament Selection Show that the Bears were one of the first four out.

The Huskers beat the Bulldogs in Starkville, MS 76-72 in an exhibition game back on October 22, 2017.

Nebraska's metrics, which held the team down most of the season, didn't appear to jibe with the NIT seeding.

It's the ninth time for MSU to play in the NIT and its first since dropping a 101-96 double-overtime decision in the opening round against UMass in 2012.

A subdued Miles was diplomatic in his assessment of Nebraska's position. "So, we look forward to playing in the NIT and preparing for Mississippi State". "Nebraska's had some fine wins in their league". Boise State beat Utah 73-68 in the first round and lost 71-56 to IL in the second round. Eight SEC teams were picked for the 68-team NCAA field, compared to four from the Big Ten. The Huskers haven't won an NIT game since 2008.

While NU's late-season schedule allowed the Huskers to pile up wins, it afforded no opportunities for signature victories.

Despite the bitter disappointment, the Huskers will have to find a way to get up to game form. Penn State, which finished three spots lower than Nebraska in the conference, is the other Big Ten team. The Huskers are just the second Big Ten team since 1985 to win 22 games and not make the NCAA Tournament.

What words did Miles say when he learned of the No. 5 seed? 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. "You hope that for your guys".
