Nebraska to play Arizona State in NCAA Tournament

Jaylen Nowell and the Huskies will have to get over the disappointment of not making the NCAA tournament to make a run in the NIT

Jaylen Nowell and the Huskies will have to get over the disappointment of not making the NCAA tournament to make a run in the NIT

Dates and timeNational Invitation Tournament s of the first-round games are still to be determined.

After three consecutive seasons hosting games in Corvallis, the Beavers on Monday drew a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament's Lexington Regional and will open at 9:30 a.m. Friday against No. 11 seed Western Kentucky (TV on ESPN2) in Knoxville, Tennessee. You're going to see some great teams, great coaches and some great games.

"We look at the entire body of work", Rasmussen said. 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.

"You know, obviously you're disappointed not to be in the NCAA tournament". They lost in Lincoln on the last day of the regular season.

Now, MSU will try to gain traction in the NIT and parlay it into next season.

Appearing in the National Invitational Tournament will be the Huskers first postseason appearance since 2014 and first NIT appearance since 2011. "That's what you want". However, they'll be coming down to Starkville to play. UW won 72-57 in 1999. Nebraska's one quality win this season came against the Wolverines, but MI came right back and smacked the Huskers in the mouth in NY a few weeks ago in the conference tournament. "It kind of takes away some of the hype of a Marquette game", said D'Acquisto. "It feels like several years ago". A practice game does not hold any comparison to a real, postseason game.

First-year coach Mike Hopkins' team had bigger things on its mind back in February. It will be a huge challenge.

MSU will play without Nick Weatherspoon. Nick Weatherspoon was a freshman All-SEC team member and is second in the team in scoring at 11.1 ppg.

Weatherspoon spent the night in a hospital. Instead, he has a hip contusion and deep swelling and bruising around the bone. "It's a big step for us", MSU coach Ben Howland said. "It's where we're going, what's our seed, and start that preparation".

Rider tied for the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title at 15-3 before being upset by ninth-seeded St. Peter's 66-55 in the conference tournament on March 2. "Once the players saw that "N" it was just an immediate joy. That's motivation alone to play in what is a great event".

The Bulldogs, like their fans, wanted a chance to be in the tournament. "We're not just satisfied to be here". She was a senior on Nebraska's 1998 NCAA Tournament squad that advanced to the second round with a win over New Mexico in Norfolk, Va. "It was mentally and physically draining trying to get over the hump last week so hopefully we can have some firepower to play on Tuesday". "We are excited about the tournament and we think it will be as competitive a field as we've ever had".
