OMAHA (KPTM) - Creighton landed in the NCAA Basketball Tournament with the number 3 seed in the West Region, the highest seed in the school's history. Nebraska landed in the same region, meaning fans from both schools head to San Antonio on Friday.
"Once you hear your name it's really exciting but we played Louisiana our freshman year and they are really well-coached. We'll need to work hard to get it done," said Doug McDermott, Big East Player of the year.
Creighton and Nebraska are also both in neighboring brackets, so if both win, we could see an all-Nebraska matchup on Sunday.
Iowa State landed the number 3 see in the East Region, but will also play in San Antonio on Friday.
With all three teams playing in the same city on the same day, that means families with fans from two or more of those teams making travel plans will have it much easier.
