Nebraska had one of the most enthusiastic reactions to seeing their name in the NCAA tournament bracket on Sunday and with good reason, as the school will be making its first appearance since 1998. That’s quite the development for Tim Miles’ program in his second year in Lincoln, especially when considering the fact that they began Big Ten play 1-5.
An 11-seed in the West Region, Nebraska will play six-seed Baylor in their NCAA tournament opener Friday in San Antonio. And should the Huskers pick up its first-ever NCAA tournament victory they could run into three-seed Creighton, who beat Nebraska 82-67 on December 8.
