NIT Tournament Bracket: Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma St Play On

Nebraska and Oklahoma St will both be playing on, though not necessarily against each other.

The Colorado Buffaloes, fresh off a monumental oversight by the NCAA Tournament committee, has accepted a bid to the NIT Tournament and will play as a one seed.

The Big 12 will also see two other schools competing in the tournament, the Oklahoma St. Cowboys and Nebraska Cornhuskers, as three and five seeds respectively.

CU's absence from the tournament has stunned most analysts. After going 21-13 on the season, including three victories over the NCAA Tournament five-seeded Kansas St. Wildcats and one apiece against the fourth seeded Texas Longhorns and the 11th seeded Missouri Tigers, CU rightfully deserved a shot at an NCAA tournament, instead, Alec Burks, Cory Higgins and Levi Knutson will have to take their talents to Madison Square Garden if they intend to win their last game of the season.

Nebraska and Ok State were both never really considered NCAA Tournament bubble teams, so their inclusion in the NIT is a little easier to swallow. On the season the Huskers were 19-12, but only 7-9 in the Big 12, while the Cowboys finished 19-13 and 6-10 in conference.
