Tim Miles talks about the Huskers first NCAA since '98 on Sunday.
LINCOLN, Neb. (KTIV) -
You can officially refer to Nebraska Head Coach Tim Miles as a "Miracle Worker."
In his second season, Miles has guided the Huskers to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1998.
Nebraska is the 11-seed in the West Region and will play former Big 12 foe, 6th seeded Baylor in the second round.
The Huskers finished four in the Big Ten standings with an 11-7 mark.
They were picked to finish last in the conference's preseason poll.
"I was just so happy for "A" the players and "B" the fans," Miles said. "Just as much emotion as they put in, it was good, but it ended up being great."
The Huskers and Bears battle at 11:40 a.m. and will be televised on TruTV.
Creighton just missed out on earning an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament, losing to Providence in the Big East title game on Saturday but, the Bluejays are in as the third seed in the West Region and play Louisiana Lafayette on Friday.
It's the second straight year Creighton is in the tournament.
