The Nebraska women finished as the #3 seed in the Big Ten after their tough loss to Maryland today. They earned a double bye in the tournament as did the Nebraska men’s basketball team.
Here are the final standings for the 2018 Big Ten women’s basketball season:
Nebraska won a three-way tiebreaker with Iowa and Minnesota by virtue of having the highest record against the other two. Nebraska went 3-0 against Minnesota and Iowa.
Here is the 2018 Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament Bracket:
This is an amazing turn-around for the women’s basketball team. They won 10 more games in the Big Ten conference than they did last season, and 13 more overall. Whether they get into the NCAA tourney seems to be a bigger mystery than the men’s team, but there’s no doubt a good tourney showing will help.
