LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska isn’t going to pursue opportunities to play in a postseason men’s basketball tournament.

Coach Tim Miles said Saturday night the decision was made after discussions with the team and athletic administration. Miles said there would have been possibilities for postseason play, but that the team had a long season that started in July with practices for a trip to Spain.

The Cornhuskers finish 16-18 after losing 97-86 to 18th-ranked Maryland in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament. Nebraska reached the quarterfinals after beat Rutgers and Wisconsin, marking the first time since 2006 that the Huskers won consecutive conference tournament games.
