Nebraska basketball (22-9, 13-15) beat Penn State (19-12, 9-9), 76-64, on Sunday, in the process earning the No. 4 seed in the Big Ten Tournament.
The Huskers played with urgency, knowing a win would greatly improve their NCAA Tournament hopes. Here’s what Nebraska coach Tim Miles said after the Huskers’ regular season finale.
On Nebraska’s postseason chances:
“That looks like an NCAA Tournament team to me.”
On the quality of the win:
“I don’t think the quadrant one is the holy rail of all things.”
"I don't think the quadrant one is the holy rail of all things," Tim Miles said. Points out how today's game was a quad 3 win for Nebraska, would've been a quad 1 win for Penn State. Makes no sense, says me.

Nebraska earned a double-bye in the conference tournament, meaning the Huskers won’t play until Friday. No. 1-seed Michigan State, No. 2-seed Ohio State and No. 3-seed Purdue also have double-byes.
The win over Penn State marked Nebraska’s 13th league win, the most in program history. The Huskers won eight of their final nine regular season games, with the lone defeat coming Feb. 18 against Illinois, which earned the No. 12 seed in the conference tournament and will play No. 13-seed Rutgers in the first round Wednesday.
