SAN ANTONIO (KTIV) - Nebraska arrived in San Antonio late Wednesday night and will face Baylor on Friday morning.

The Bears have won 10 of its last 12 and Nebraska ended the season winning 10 of its last 13.      Both are huge turnarounds for teams that were a combined 2-11 in conference play in January.

Nebraska coach Tim Miles says he wouldn't have bet on his Huskers making the tournament after a 1-5 start in the Big Ten.

Nebraska has never won a game in the NCAA tourney.

"I'm really thankful to have this opportunity here and to have this program, for some of our fans to to through an experience they haven't had in a long time," said Miles. "They've invested emotionally in this team. Thank goodness we made the tournament, now let's take that next step and find a way to win."

Nebraska and Baylor play at 11:40 on Friday morning, right before third-seeded Creighton plays Louisiana-Lafayette at 2:10.
