When Mississippi State tips off against Nebraska on Wednesday night at Humphrey Coliseum in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament, It will quite literally be a different kind of game for the Bulldogs.

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

They say $20 premium tickets are for sale in the premium boxes and terrace areas. Boise State (23-8) earned a No. 4 seed but will travel to No. 5 Washington (20-12) because of the NCAA Tournament being played at Taco Bell Arena.

Not only too little to get into the NCAA Tournament. That pretty much sealed Nebraska's fate.

Overall the 2018 NIT is Nebraska's 25th postseason appearance and 18th NIT appearance.

Nebraska has one of the biggest win-total improvements in the country from last season, and is now 21-10 overall, 11-5 in conference play.

In many ways, the Huskers were victims of scheduling factors that were well beyond their control. "I haven't done it all year and I'm certainly not going to start now".

Rider tied for the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title at 15-3 before being upset by ninth-seeded St. Peter's 66-55 in the conference tournament on March 2. But then the second "slap in the face" as NU head coach Tim Miles put it, was finding out the team's seeding in the NIT.

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

The Huskers finished fourth in the Big Ten with a 13-5 record before losing to eventual tournament champion MI in the Big Ten Quarterfinals on March 2.

After getting knocked out of the Big Ten Tournament on March 2 by Michigan, Nebraska spent the next nine days practicing and preparing as if they would be in the field. However, that won't be the end of Mississippi State's season.

"I'm still emotional about the whole thing", Miles said. Nebraska was the last of six Big Ten teams announced in the field.

On top of many firsts, the good news is that the Golden Eagles will have a packed house at The Al McGuire Center on Wednesday night.

The Bears will be a one-seed and will host the first round. Junior guard Quinndary Weatherspoon, who leads his team with a 14.8 scoring clip, was named second-team All-SEC, while his brother Nick was tabbed to the SEC All-Freshmen squad after averaging 11.1 points.
