CRAWFORD .| For Louisville women, another first: A No. 1 NCAA Tournament seed

Other intriguing possible NIT opponents include: Oklahoma and freshman sensation Trae Young, a 23-win Boise State team or Louisville, Notre Dame, Baylor and Oklahoma State, which are projected to land No. 1 seeds.

This is Oregon's first time hosting an NCAA women's tournament game in 18 years.

The Huskies and Beavers went into overtime but UW was without leading scorers Jaylen Nowell and Noah Dickerson due to foul trouble. The two programs have not met since December 23, 1999.

Perhaps even worse than the Cornhuskers getting the fifth seed and not getting a game in Lincoln is that Penn State got a four seed.

The NIT does not have predetermined sites, so the first three rounds are hosted by schools in the tournament, and the second and third round games are determined based on the winners of the first round.

The Washington-Boise State victor will play the victor of the game between Saint Mary's and Southeastern Louisiana. Not receiving an NCAA bid was another blow for the Cardinals, but Mahmoud said they're focusing on trying to win another tournament, albeit one with a lower profile than the Big Dance.
