Bracketology: Nebraska among Joe Lunardi’s ‘first four out’ entering Big Ten Tournament

Nebraska basketball still has some work to do to make the NCAA Tournament, according to Joe Lunardi.

The ESPN Bracketologist had the Huskers listed third among his “first four out” in his latest NCAA Tournament projection Monday morning. The Huskers beat Penn State, a fellow bubble team, on Sunday to finish the regular season. Tim Miles’ team placed fourth in the Big Ten with a 13-5 mark and went 22-9 overall in the regular season, but it still might not be enough to get an invite to the big dance.

Louisville, USC, Baylor and Texas were the “last four in” in the projection. Syracuse and UCLA were ahead of Nebraska on the “first four out.”

Nebraska is the No. 4 seed in this week’s Big Ten Tournament. The Huskers get a double-bye to Thursday’s quarterfinals, but they could be matched up against a surging Michigan team in their first game at Madison Square Garden.

Why some of the bracket experts think Nebraska might miss the NCAA Tournament, Land of 10’s Sean Keeler broke down why the selection committee should believe in the Huskers.
