Not only too little to get into the NCAA Tournament. She was a senior on Nebraska's 1998 NCAA Tournament squad that advanced to the second round with a win over New Mexico in Norfolk, Va.

"I don't know if I really understand it all", Drew said. "We get to do it at home". Drew now leads No. 1 Baylor against No. 8 Wagner in the first round of the NIT on Tuesday.


By having the game against Harvard at Al McGuire it should bring a heightened level of excitement and high energy that both players and fans during the game. No. 3 OR is on the left side of the bracket, which includes several East Coast teams.

Interim athletic director Vince Tyra said on "The Deener Show" on WHBE-680 last week that Louisville accepted the NIT invitation before knowing if they would have a spot in the NCAA Tournament. "So, we'll look forward to playing in the NIT and preparing for Mississippi State".

"I'm sure they did have conversations among themselves in the last however many days", Padgett said when asked about the vote.

The NIT will have a number of rules changes from Mountain West play. "They're an older group of guys, so they've been through a lot since we saw each other late in October".


Morgan wouldn't comment on why the tournament is being hosted at the Al McGuire versus BMO Harris.

With Cain in the middle and a commitment to defense for the entire Nebraska team, the Huskers improved by 13 points defensively from a year ago, allowing just 63.3 points per game this season.

The Broncs start two freshmen including Dimencio Vaughn, a first-team, all-conference selection who averaged 15.8 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. For comparison's sake, the Broncs score 81.7 points per game (30th nationally) and shoot 46.5 percent from the field. But he did say that Marquette is excited to host the tournament on campus. "We have to see who can do what and who their shooters are". The two programs have not met since December 23, 1999.

"At least we made NIT". But we played plenty of Power Six schools. The game will be divided into four 10-minute quarters as opposed to two 20-minute halves and teams will shoot two free throws beginning with the fifth foul of each quarter. The lane will be pushed from 12 feet to 16 to match the National Basketball Association design. The Arizona State-Nebraska victor will likely play second-seeded Texas in the second round.


Not only are the Huskers not in the Big Dance, they're not even hosting a first-round NIT game.
