Fifth-seeded Nebraska men's basketball to open NIT at Mississippi State

Despite a record of 22-10 and 13-5 in Big Ten Conference play, Nebraska's strength of schedule and lack of Quadrant 1 wins ended up being its downfall. "It is what it is; we can still do something about it", said Head Coach Tim Miles after learning the Huskers were left out of the NCAA tournament on Selection Sunday. In the first round of the 32 team tournament, Baylor will host the eighth-seeded Wagner Seahawks, who won the Northeast Conference regular season crown. The Huskers, however, were not able to claim their first NCAA bid since 2014.

Overall the 2018 NIT is Nebraska's 25th postseason appearance and 18th NIT appearance. The Huskers were the NIT champions in 1996.
