That means the Bulldogs will be leaning more heavily on a host of other players to pick up the slack of Weatherspoon, who is the team's second-leading scorer (11.1 points per game) and arguably State's best defender. If it receives a No. 5 seed, UW won't play another game in Seattle this season, unless there's an upset in the No. 1 vs. The March 27 semifinals and March 29 championship game will be held at Madison Square Garden in NY.

For Nebraska, it was less about the quantity of wins and more about the quality.

"Marquette had flashes of good play, but we weren't able to make it come together when it mattered", said Tim Houge, MU grad student.

The potential capacity for the game is just like a regular home game - 22,000 seats available.

One year after winning just seven games -- the worst in program history - the Nebraska women's basketball team has qualified for the NCAA Tournament. And Oklahoma had six wins against top 35 RPI (teams).

Maybe more importantly, Nebraska didn't capitalize on the few opportunities for ever-important Quadrant 1 wins it did have.

Sunday night, the Bulldogs garnered an NIT bid and will play host to Nebraska at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, with the victor facing Baylor or Wagner in the second round.


Now the Huskers are part of an exclusive, and disappointing, club.

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

In addition to Washington, the Pac-12 could send five teams to the NIT including Arizona State, Oregon, Utah and Stanford and possibly Colorado.

UW pushed its non-conference record to 10-3 and surpassed its win total from last season. The 5-9 sophomore from Barneveld, Wis., leads Nebraska in scoring (12.6 ppg), assists (4.8 apg) and steals (1.3 spg). 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. The selection committee released the eight teams that had been considered for the last four spots in the tournament, and Nebraska was not included. We expect to be in.

"I'm not ready to stop watching now and seeing Rowsey one more time is worth the price", said Rogers.

"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.

Nebraska must get over its disappointment quickly.
