Louisville players voted against NIT, school accepted invitation anyway

The victor of the Wagner-Baylor game advances to face the victor of the matchup between No. 4 Mississippi State- No. 5 Nebraska.

The No. 1 seed in the Spokane Regional is Notre Dame. That's when the ESPN projections added the Huskers as the very last team in the NCAA Tournament.

As for the rest of the Big Ten, only four teams made it and they were the expected ones: Purdue (two-seed), Michigan (three-seed), Michigan State (three-seed), and Ohio State (five-seed). That also happened in 2016, although Northern Iowa and Wichita State both made the NCAA that year. View the full bracket here. Then on Sunday night after the NCAA Tournament snub, the team held a players-only meeting, but there is no knowledge of what was discussed. The Bulldogs will host Abilene Christian on Monday.

ISU coach Dan Muller said two weeks ago the Redbirds would decline invitations to the College Basketball Invitational and CollegeInsider.com Tournament if they weren't selected for the NIT or advanced to the NCAA Tournament by winning the MVC tourney title.

On Sunday, it becomes official when the 32-team bracket is unveiled at 5:30 p.m. during the NIT Selection Special on ESPNU. ASU has won at least one game in the last four tournaments, and coach Charli Turner Thorne has won 421 games in Tempe, second-most in Pac-12 history.

"I don't know if I really understand it all", Drew said.

Boise State will make their second-straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

It's not clear exactly what the NCAA selection committee has against the Huskers but it seems as if a week spent talking about how Nebraska didn't deserve to be in the NCAAs convinced everyone they barely deserved to be in the postseason. That game is scheduled for a 5 p.m. (CT) tip on ESPN2.

Maybe more importantly, Nebraska didn't capitalize on the few opportunities for ever-important Quadrant 1 wins it did have. The first three rounds are played at the higher-seeded team. They were a part of a weak Big Ten and didn't have many impressive wins throughout the regular season. "We can benefit from this experience going forward". "(Teams like Nebraska, St. Mary's, and Middle Tennessee) played some great non-conference games, they just didn't win those games".
