Marquette to play Harvard as No. 2 seed in NIT

Marquette to play Harvard as No. 2 seed in NIT

Enough so that they earned a 10-seed in the NCAA Tournament.

It's been a long four days for the Huskies since their first-round loss in the Pac-12 tournament Wednesday.

The Courier-Journal reported that the Louisville players voted to decline an invitation to the NIT before the ACC Tournament began last week. UW's best finish in The NIT came in 2012 when it reached the semifinals. Boise State (23-8) earned a No. 4 seed but will travel to No. 5 Washington (20-12) because of the NCAA Tournament being played at Taco Bell Arena. The Hawkeyes and Gophers also made the Tournament. The Broncos and Huskies met in a closed-door preseason scrimmage, with the Broncos reportedly winning the session.

If Nebraska wins, Nebraska will play the victor of top-seeded Baylor against eighth-seeded Wagner in the second round. The 2017-18 Seahawks reached the 20-win plateau for the eighth time in program history and second in the last three seasons.

The Washington-Boise State victor will play the victor of the game between Saint Mary's and Southeastern Louisiana. "I'm very proud of the hard work they've put in to get to this point and to be rewarded by extending our season is a great chance to keep getting better".

Not only too little to get into the NCAA Tournament. Washington struggled down the stretch and went just 3-7 over their final 10 games.

Williams, talking to media 90 minutes after the big reveal, said she didn't know much about Arizona State.

Apple Maps will make getting around easier with new bike-sharing feature
The maps app lists Citi Bike in NYC, Divvy in Chicago, Biketown in Portland, BIXI in Montreal, and Velib in Paris. So, for users that often rely on these shared bikes for regular travel, Apple Maps won't be a big help there.

Scouting Oregon: The Ducks are in the NIT one year after making a run to the Final Four. "We get to do it at home". If Rider, which is a No. 6 seed, upsets third-seeded OR, it gets the victor of second-seeded Marquette and seventh-seeded Harvard. That year, the Bears won the championship, defeating Iowa in the title game.

Both the Huskers and Bluejays are in the Kansas City Regional. They will visit fourth-seeded Western Kentucky in the first round. That pushed their record to 17-6.

The regular season was fun, but at the end of the day, Nebraska was not worthy of partaking in this year's tournament. That game is scheduled for a 5 p.m. (CT) tip on ESPN2.

Still, the Sooners benefitted from a 6-9 mark vs. Quadrant 1 teams, the 32nd-ranked strength of schedule, and an RPI of 49.

Vermont (27-7) at Middle Tennessee (24-7), 5 p.m. The top seed in the Spokane regional is Notre Dame. (22-9) on Thursday in the South Region at Dallas. The Huskers have a 21-10 record this year.

Despite all of those things, Penn State is a four seed and is hosting the Temple Owls.

It will be the first-ever meeting between Nebraska and Arizona State in the postseason, and the only previous neutral site meeting between the schools came in the first match-up, a 71-69 Husker win at the California Invitational on November 29, 1979.
