Huskies earn five-seed in 2018 NIT and will host Boise State

Head coach Carolyn Kieger fires up fans before Marquette's 2017 NCAA Tournament game against Quinnipiac

Head coach Carolyn Kieger fires up fans before Marquette's 2017 NCAA Tournament game against Quinnipiac

Louisville men's basketball players voted against playing in the NIT, according to the Courier-Journal, but school administrators still accepted an invitation to play in the tournament.

After missing out on the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2013, the Baylor Bears are NIT bound.

The Huskies and Boise State have faced off nine times with UW having an 8-1 advantage. This is the first time the teams have officially met since December 23, 1999, according to UW. Typically, the higher seed hosts the first round game but due to Boise State hosting first and second rounds of the NCAA Championships, their arena is unavailable.

Should Washington advance, the Dawgs will take on the victor of No. 1 Saint Mary's (Calif.)/No. 8 Southeastern Louisiana.

Baylor will battle No. 8 seed Wagner on Tuesday. The improvement is the largest increase by any team in 2018 NCAA Tournament field and tied for the biggest jump in Division I with fellow Big Ten partner Rutgers.

Harvard, Boston College, and Vermont accepted bids to the NIT and will open with road games in the tournament.

Since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, 304 of 306 teams to win at least 13 league games in a power conference through the 2016-17 season made the tournament. Washington struggled down the stretch and went just 3-7 over their final 10 games.

His latest rebuilding effort at Mississippi State saw the Bulldogs finish seventh in the SEC standings with a 9-9 ledger after placing 12 in 2017. The Cornhuskers finished 22-10 and 13-5 in Big Ten Conference play.

The semifinals and final will be played in New York's Madison Square Garden on March 27 and 29.

This game will air on ESPN3 at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday March 14. The Huskies won two straight over Cal and OSU but would lose to OR on the final day of the regular season. Tipoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. E.T. The other two pairings in this section of the bracket include Hampton at Notre Dame and Temple at Penn State.

Rider (22-9) at OR (22-12), 7 p.m.

Even changing one of Nebraska's close losses to Kansas, Creighton or Ohio State to a win wouldn't appear to do much more than improve the Huskers' NIT seeding.

No. 1 Nathan Boniel of PSU won 6-4, 6-4.
