interesting how being an 11/12 seed is more appealing now than a 7/10 and especially an 8/9
7-22 record to #11 seed (Potentially) in 2nd full season.
With the current recruiting rankings looks like Coach Williams and staff have this thing righted quickly after the dumpster fire left behind.
Lots of ball to be played and this will change a bunch; but, this looks like a decent set up for Husker hoops.
DePaul and Missouri would not be slouches on opening weekend in Columbia. But, if we can get through that, it would be off to Spokane for Oregon but at least not on their home court. Notre Dame / Tennessee would likely be waiting in the Elite 8 and now it's a very neutral site. Jess Shepherd against the Huskers for a trip to the final four?
Yes, talk about a conversation that means very little. So many of these seeds will change and teams will come and go. The take home point is, the WBB team has improved dramatically and to be considered at this time is a major accomplishment for the team and staff.
Hmmmmm...not sure what happened over the last couple of weeks. Lost a close one to the #10 team. Not sure how Purdue gets in ahead of us after we smoked them by 20+.
Perplexing to say the least. I guess, much like the men, the women just need to keep winning so they leave no doubt.

Women's basketball: Assessing the Huskers' chances at making the NCAA tournament
1. Win the last two remaining regular season games; vs Penn State and @ Maryland.
2. Split the last two games And win Two Games in the B1G Tournament.
3. Lose the last two games; Must Win the B1G Tournament outright.
ESPN still has a terrible bracketologist.
He still has the B1G #3 team Nebraska OUT? Two dominating wins over Iowa (6 seed), beat Purdue by 25 (11 seed), lost to Michigan on bad call (8 seed), close loss to Maryland (5 seed), beat Rutgers (11 seed), beat Minn (10 seed). SEVEN big ten teams in the bracket and Huskers are out?
Apparently, this bracketologist does not have the pulse of what the committee will consider.
Unfortunately, ESPN is one of the only sports media outlets that does a decent job of covering women's sports once you get past the U Conn love.
