BYU receives 6 seed in NIT, will play Stanford in first round

BYU receives 6 seed in NIT, will play Stanford in first round

The fifth-seeded Huskies will actually host the No. 4 Broncos at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Alaska Airlines Arena due to a scheduling conflict. The game will be on ESPN2.

Baylor also made a deep run in the NIT in 2009, but lost to Penn State in the tournament championship game.

The date and time for the first-round game were not immediately announced. The 32-team bracket is split into four groups of eight seeded No. 1 through No. 8.

This is the sixth time in program history that Boise State will play in the NIT. Considering NU's fourth-place finish in the Big Ten, those could be much better draws than in year's past.

"But it's a great opportunity to be a No. 1 seed in the NIT". The shot clock rules will also be different, as it will reset to 20 seconds after an offensive rebound as opposed to the full 30 seconds.

ESPN's Charlie Creme projects the Bulldogs as a No. 1 seed in the Kansas City regional and would host the opening two rounds in Starkville. The Huskies won two straight over Cal and OSU but would lose to OR on the final day of the regular season.

Mississippi State is 22-10 and finished tied for seventh in the Southeastern Conference.

Nebraska's game against the Sun Devils (21-12, 10-8 Pac-12) will be the eighth all-time meeting between the Huskers and Arizona State.

Even though they aren't headed to the NCAA Tournament, the Bears will still play in the postseason.
