BYU gets NIT bid for third straight year, will play at Stanford

The Nebraska Cornhuskers were considered to be on the bubble going into the women's basketball selection show for the NCAA Tournament on Monday.

In many ways, the Huskers were victims of scheduling factors that were well beyond their control.

The Huskers went 22-10 this season, including a 13-5 record in the Big Ten, but they didn't really have any big wins. One year after posting the worst record in school history, Nebraska improbably posted one of the biggest turnarounds in NU athletics. Creighton was one of the last four teams chosen. BSU, despite getting a bye, fell in its only conference tournament game, 78-75, to Utah State.

Well, it didn't come as a surprise, but the Nebraska Cornhuskers were left out of the NCAA Tournament fun. "Granted that's not the same as NCAA march madness, but it's at least something", said Kyle Urbanik, MU student.

"Yeah, a little bit", Miles told reporters. "We've always scheduled, I think, fairly to what we thought". "We're not just satisfied to be here. We watched her play quite a bit". The three-point line will be moved back nearly two feet, the lane will be wider and the game will be divided into four, 10-minute quarters.

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

The Hangover's Todd Phillips will direct the yet-to-be-titled film, with Martin Scorsese acting as Executive Producer. He reads lines from both 1989's Batman and 2008's The Dark Knight , all with that thick "New Orleans" accent.

The Nittany Lions finished behind the Huskers in the Big Ten standings.

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.

BYU received an invitation to the National Invitation Tournament on Sunday as a No. 6 seed and will play at No. 3 seed Stanford either Tuesday or Wednesday. "Nobody could've predicted that, and you can't".

Arizona State is 21-12 going into the NCAA Tournament and got into the postseason as a Pac-12 at-large team.

Sabrina Ionescu, the Pac-12 player of the year and conference tournament most outstanding player, leads the Ducks, averaging 19.4 points and assists 7.8 assists. "So we will play if there is that opportunity". Season ticket holders were able to start purchasing their tickets, for the now sold out game at 9 a.m. Monday. The Ducks are expected to host the first two rounds at Matthew Knight Arena, with the men's team working around that as necessary.

"I'm sure they did have conversations among themselves in the last however many days", Padgett said when asked about the vote. "It's hard for an 8 o'clock game on a weeknight, but we need it". The games in November, December count the same as the games in February and March.
