Northwestern’s loss Thursday night to Penn State has locked in Nebraska as the No. 10 seed in next week’s Big Ten Conference men’s basketball tournament.

The Huskers will play next Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the United Center in Chicago against the No. 7 seed. That could still be Illinois, Minnesota or Iowa.

Nebraska plays at Iowa Saturday at 1:15 p.m. to finish the regular season.
