(Neb.)- Husker Men Selected For NIT
(Chadrad Sports)- After putting together one of their best regular seasons in program history, Nebraska was not selected for an at large bid to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament when the brackets were announced on Sunday.
The Huskers did however, earn a spot in the National Invitational Tournament (NIT). The slap in the face according to head coach Tim Miles, was that Nebraska was seeded fifth and will travel to Mississippi State for first round action Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
The game is rematch of an exhibition played in the preseason to help raise hurricane relief funds. The Huskers won that game 76-72.
