Although the Louisville Cardinals fell painstakingly short of the NCAA tournament, the season isn't over because the school accepted a bid to the NIT. All 31 games will be televised on ESPN networks.

"They played some good nonconference games", Rasmussen said on the NCAA Selection show on TBS.

Nebraska still posted a Strength of Record - easily its best resume metric - of 32nd nationally that put it ahead of 24 other teams considered to be on the bubble or safely in the tournament. They have a worse RPI.

After a devastating home loss to Oregon to finish the season, Washington was outmatched by Oregon State for the second time of the year in the opening round of the Pac-12 tourney. Satisfaction, too. Cincore and Wood, both seniors, made the NCAA tournament as true freshmen. It's UW's first NIT appearance since the 2015-16 season when the Huskies finished the year 19-15 and lost in the second round. While describing Middle Tennessee State's absence from the NCAA bracket, NCAA Selection Committee chair Rasmussen may just as well have been talking about the Huskers. You're going to see some great teams, great coaches and some great games. "At the end of the day though, they've had a lot of success and we've had some of our own".

Nebraska, which enters the postseason with a 22-10 record, is the No. 5 seed and will take on No. 4 seed Mississippi State (22-11), on Wednesday, March 14, at Humphrey Coliseum in Starkville, Miss. "I think our team is capable of winning games in the NCAA tournament, but that's for somebody else to decide", Wojciechowski said. The Ducks have reached the NIT Final Four in NY on three occasions: 1975, 1999 and 2004. They come to college to play in tournaments, was it on the stage they were hoping for? "I know we're all excited about this opportunity". Division II and Division III also have their own tournaments. ASU has won at least one game in the last four tournaments, and coach Charli Turner Thorne has won 421 games in Tempe, second-most in Pac-12 history. 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.

OR had been in the NCAA field for five straight seasons since losing to Washington in 2012.
