After waiting more than a week to find out if it would play in the NCAA Tournament, the Nebraska men's basketball team didn't get the answer it was hoping for.

Nebraska will travel to Mississippi State for a first-round NIT game after the Huskers received only a No. 5 seed for the 32-team tournament.

Miles and the fan base doesn't seem to understand what happened Sunday night.

The Cornhuskers come to Starkville sporting a 22-10 overall record and a 13-5 mark in Big 10 play.

It's the ninth time for MSU to play in the NIT and its first since dropping a 101-96 double-overtime decision in the opening round against UMass in 2012. Boise State beat Utah 73-68 in the first round and lost 71-56 to IL in the second round.

"Very disappointed", Miles said, when asked about the team's reaction.

Panthers reportedly trade Daryl Worley to Eagles for Torrey Smith
The 2016 third-round pick out of West Virginia has started 25 games in his brief career, including 14 starts last season. He was pulled after the second series against the Eagles in Week 6 and sat for a good portion of the game.

While NU's late-season schedule allowed the Huskers to pile up wins, it afforded no opportunities for signature victories.

The Big Ten did get four teams in: No. 2 seed Purdue, No. 3 seeds Michigan and Michigan State, and No. 5 seed Ohio State.

Now the Huskers are part of an exclusive, and disappointing, club. The only two that didn't were Washington and OR in the Pac-12 in 2011-12.

The only other Big Ten school in the NIT field is Penn State (21-13, 9-9 Big Ten).

The day and time for the Broncos' game is to be determined, but first-round games are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. "I don't have anything really good to say to you guys today".
