Harvard, BC, Vermont get bids to NIT

The victor of the Wagner-Baylor game advances to face the victor of the matchup between No. 4 Mississippi State- No. 5 Nebraska. Eight SEC teams were picked for the 68-team NCAA field, compared to four from the Big Ten. This is the first time the teams have officially met since December 23, 1999, according to UW. NU was seeded fifth and will play at fourth-seeded Mississippi State. Not even enough to get a home game in the National Invitation Tournament.

Nebraska did a good job of helping its chances at the finish, beating a tournament-level team in MI in the conference tournament quarterfinals.

The No. 6 seed Hawkeyes will take on No. 11 Creighton at 5 p.m. on Saturday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. All four teams had been hopeful of receiving at-large bids to the NCAA Tournament.

Datcher has seen action in 28 of State's 33 games this season. That year, the Bears won the championship, defeating Iowa in the title game.

I am definitely in favor of trying new rules in the NIT before implementing them universally. This is the 14th time the program has played in the NCAA tournament, but the first under second-year head coach Amy Williams.

Maybe more importantly, Nebraska didn't capitalize on the few opportunities for ever-important Quadrant 1 wins it did have.

This season, the Huskers posted a 22-10 overall record, a 13-5 conference mark, a tie for fourth place in the 14-team Big Ten and a 9½-game improvement over previous year. Nebraska, like many other teams, was hoping to make it in to the NCAA Tournament.

Baylor and Oklahoma State also earned a spot in the tournament. If I remember correctly, the block/charge semi-circle was introduced to the college game through the NIT first as well and that was an excellent addition.

Lindsey said he is excited to play under these revised rules, but that shouldn't change the outcome of games. The Huskers have a 21-10 record this year.

Rider, located in Lawrenceville, N.J., was the regular season champion of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference after going 22-9 overall and 15-3 in league play. 2 Kansas in Kansas City, Mo.

Nebraska is one of six Big Ten teams in, joining Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio State.
