(Neb.)-Huskers, Blue Jays on NCAA collision course
The state of Nebraska will have two teams in the NCAA men's basketball tournament for the first time since 1991 — and they would meet if they win their openers Friday in San Antonio.
No. 3-seeded Creighton will open against No. 14 Louisiana and No. 11 Nebraska will play No. 6 Baylor.
Creighton (26-7) is in the NCAA tournament for the third year in a row. Nebraska (19-11) had to sweat until its name was called, but it didn't take too long. The Huskers are in the tournament for the first time since 1998.
The crowd of 2,000 at Pinnacle Bank Arena erupted when Nebraska appeared on the big screen at the team's NCAA Selection Show watch party.
