Baylor is No. 1 seed in 2018 NIT Tournament

Boise State women get 16th seed, headed to Kentucky

The Huskies have wins over 10 ranked opponents, including projected No. 1 seed Louisville and perennial power SC.

The Huskers will travel to Mississippi State to take on the fourth-seeded Bulldogs (22-11, 9-9 SEC).

After losing to MI in the Big Ten Tournament more than a week ago, the Huskers have been forced to wait and wonder whether they'll be playing in the NCAA Tournament this year.

Background: The odds are certainly stacked against the Broncs, who were always going to be underdogs before the NIT selection committee opted to send them across the country for a first-round game on Tuesday night.

Get the full story later on or in Monday's edition of The World-Herald. We spent the week hearing that the Cornhuskers were long shots at best to get in.

Creighton was also chosen for the tournament as an at-large team.

Although they're still seen as one of the elite squads in women's basketball, and one of a few that can challenge for a championship, the Gamecocks should be relegated to a No. 2 seed due to their six losses.

"They played some good nonconference games", Rasmussen said on the NCAA Selection show on TBS. They finished the 2017-18 regular season undefeated, winning all but two games by double-digit margins.

The first three rounds are held at campus sites and in most cases the higher seed is the host. The only two that didn't were Washington and OR in the Pac 12 in 2011-12.

While I think it is the correct decision to give teams like Oklahoma and Arizona State NCAA Tournament berths for their strong early season resumes, the NIT should be under no such obligation to give Temple an NIT berth.

Williams earned 2018 Big Ten Conference Coach-of-the-Year honors from the league coaches and media and is one of 10 semifinalists for the Werner Ladder Naismith National Coach-of-the-Year award.

The sixth-ranked Ducks (30-4) will host No. 15 Seattle in the first round at approximately 4 p.m. on Friday.

Mississippi State was 17-2 at home this season and 2-8 in true road games.

Muffet McGraw and Notre Dame are no strangers to success in the NCAA tournament - she's made five trips to the NCAA title game in her career and seven to the Final Four.

Game 1, 4 p.m.
