Projected seed: 8

Nebraska's tournament resume paints the picture of a team that's had its ups and downs throughout a grueling Big Ten schedule but has managed to secure some quality wins that bolster its case. The eye-catching victory at home against Purdue, the top dog of the conference, certainly stands out as the crown jewel of their achievements. They've also taken down Michigan State and swept Indiana, displaying their ability to tangle with solid competition. However, blowout losses to Creighton and Illinois, along with a shaky out-of-conference schedule lacking marquee wins, highlight some inconsistency. With upcoming games against Rutgers and Michigan, the Cornhuskers have a chance to pad their resume and enter the tournament conversation with a bit more certainty. These final regular-season performances will be crucial in either solidifying a comfortable seed or leaving their fate hanging precariously on the edge come Selection Sunday.
