Nebraska basketball bracketology: Huskers back on the bubble

Nebraska basketball is back on the bubble after an ugly loss. Here’s the latest bracketology update for the Huskers.

Nebraska basketball is aiming to reach the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2014, but the Huskers took a step back with their blowout loss on Saturday against Maryland.

The Huskers got drilled by 22 points on the road. Their NET ranking, which is a tool the NCAA selection committee uses, dropped 15 spots. The margin of victory matters and the Huskers have had three double-digit defeats on the road in Big Ten play.

Before the Maryland game, Nebraska basketball was projected as a No. 9 seed according to Joe Lunardi of ESPN. Now, the Huskers dropped to a No. 11 seed and are projected among the last four teams in the field, which would mean a trip to Dayton.

That would still be an accomplishment for the Huskers. Plus, plenty of first-four teams have gone on to win multiple games in March Madness. But, Nebraska is squarely on the bubble. The Huskers will host 10th-ranked Wisconsin on Thursday, before taking on Illinois and Northwestern on the road.

The good news is that there are plenty of chances to improve the resume, but Nebraska has to start winning on the road or it will be headed to the NIT.

The Nebraska women’s team is still solidly in the field as a No. 8 seed despite back-to-back losses to Penn State and Iowa on the road. However, just about every women’s college basketball team goes down to Caitlin Clark.

Nebraska is a No. 8 seed right now and is projected in the Columbia bracket according to ESPN. The Huskers will play Purdue on Wednesday.
