What's the next step for UW? The NIT and a chance for the Huskies to “get better”

Once the Huskers (21-10 overall and 11-5 in the Big Ten) beat MI in the league tournament, they felt like they'd done more than enough to secure a bid. Nebraska produced an eight-game improvement in league play (3-13, 2016-17). The Huskers have a 21-10 record this year.

First-year coach Mike Hopkins' team had bigger things on its mind back in February.

Williams was a sophomore guard on a 1996 Husker team that earned a trip to the first round.

For Nebraska, it was less about the quantity of wins and more about the quality. They were widely viewed as one of the 10 best teams that would be left out of the NCAA Tournament.

2015 (9) NEB vs. (8) Syracuse First Round Columbia, S.C. 2 Kansas in Kansas City, Mo.
