Immediately following the crushing 69-66 overtime defeat to Oregon State, the Washington men's basketball team knew it had been eliminated from the NCAA tournament and would likely land in the National Invitation Tournament. The game will be on ESPN2.
All 32 first-round games will be played on either Friday or Saturday.
"We've worked hard all year to get to postseason", Quinndary Weatherspoon said.
Hopefully this year's momentum carries over into the 2018-2019 campaign, but until then, it's NIT time for Nebrasketball. The 5-9 sophomore from Barneveld, Wis., leads Nebraska in scoring (12.6 ppg), assists (4.8 apg) and steals (1.3 spg). For now, the Huskies (20-12) are turning their attention to The NIT. They had a great year with some really big wins.
Michigan State basketball robbed of a 2-seed in 2018 NCAA Tournament
Kentucky opens in a tough 5-12 matchup against Davidson before going on to face Deandre Ayton and Arizona if it survives. Unless you have an affinity for Big Sky Conference basketball, then you probably don't know much about Montana.
If Oregon wins, it will host the victor of No. 7 seed Wisconsin-Green Bay and No. 10 seed Minnesota on Sunday.
UW, however, would get into late foul trouble and fall to Oregon State in overtime in a first-round game at the Pac-12 Tournament at T-Mobile Arena. The 2017-18 Seahawks reached the 20-win plateau for the eighth time in program history and second in the last three seasons. Nebraska, like many other teams, was hoping to make it in to the NCAA Tournament.
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. This despite the fact that they lost the NCAA tournament one seed Kansas by a point.
"When all those brackets were going by and we weren't seeing our name, it was kind of getting a little nerve-wracking", Williams said. "Our fans and the whole city has so supportive and their energy has helped us in many games already this year and we're excited to give them another chance to see us play at home", added Hopkins.

The Washington-Boise State victor will play the victor of the game between Saint Mary's and Southeastern Louisiana. The March 27 semifinals and March 29 championship game will be held at Madison Square Garden in NY.
MSU will play in its ninth NIT.
The court will look different as the tournament is experimenting with new rules including extending the three-point line by almost two feet to 22-feet, 1 3/4-inches, the distance used internationally by FIBA.
The 3-point line will be extended by approximately 1 foot 8 inches to the same distance used by FIBA for worldwide competition (22 feet 1.75 inches).
