Washington Huskies land NIT invite, will host Boise State

Louisville interim head coach David Padgett will coach in the NIT. More

Enough so that they earned a 10-seed in the NCAA Tournament. The former Louisville player's season-long approach has been maintaining continuity and success for Cardinal players and the program rather than worry about his future. The Owls were seen as an NCAA Tournament lock at one point and own wins over Auburn, Wichita State, and Clemson, but finished with an 8-10 record in the AAC.

Well, it didn't come as a surprise, but the Nebraska Cornhuskers were left out of the NCAA Tournament fun.

"My second team at Pittsburgh made the NIT and the following year we made the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA tournament", Howland said.

As of a week ago, the Huskies were trying to sneak into the NCAA Tournament.

The game will be played in Austin, Texas on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. The game will be on ESPN2.

The Huskers surged into NCAA contention during a stretch in January where they won five straight games, and they were all good ones, against Purdue, Rutgers, twice against Iowa and IL.

In February, the Huskers kept winning, including a good one on the road at Michigan State. "This is a huge accomplishment for our program and we look forward to competing against top-level competition in the field".

Man tries to stop hit-and-run driver in Miami with sledge hammer
Police confirmed Sunday afternoon that there was a hit-and run crash on Northeast 36th Street and Biscayne Boulevard in Miami . Right away, we see a couple of people get in front of the vehicle and tell Lagutenko to stop while trying to open his doors.

The Duck men beat Washington State and Utah in last week's Pac-12 tournament at Las Vegas, Nevada, before falling to USC in the semifinals.

In early March things started getting even more serious for those teams on the bubble.

Oklahoma staggered to the finish line, losing eight of its last 10 games.

It's a turnaround like few others in Nebraska athletics. Their 88 ranked RPI did them in. It did not include Nebraska. So the Huskers were safely in, or weren't a contender.

"I don't know if I really understand it all", Drew said. "But of course, nothing was for sure, and we were still nervous". The team gathered at Williams' house.

"It's just so special", Wood said.

"She had tears streaming down her face", leading scorer Hannah Whitish said. Same for their head coach. They were very, very excited. But their confidence grew as the season wore on, and a team without superstars, Williams said, built great chemistry. They were a part of a weak Big Ten and didn't have many impressive wins throughout the regular season. It's a good recipe for a NCAA tournament-bound team. Senior guard JoJo Cooper, a 2018 All-NEC First Team selection, dished out four assists and grabbed three rebounds in that contest as a sophomore while then-freshman guard Devin Liggeons logged a minute in the Seahawk win. The 6-foot-8, 345-pound Brown also had the worst vertical jump (19.5 inches), broad jump (82.0 inches) and 20-yard shuttle time (5.38) for players at all positions and only did 14 repetitions on the bench press, the worst among offensive linemen. 2 Kansas in Kansas City, Mo.
