5 things to know about Mizzou's first-round opponent in NCAA Tournament

5 things to know about Mizzou's first-round opponent in NCAA Tournament

The Seminoles earned a ninth seed in the West region on Selection Sunday and are slated to play the Missouri Tiger on Friday, March 16th. Jordan Barnett was arrested for DWI this past weekend, and as a result, he's been suspended for the contest. The school handbook for athletes says driving under the influence merits a minimum one-week suspension for a first offense.

Missouri was awarded the eight seed and will take on Florida State in their first tournament game in Nashville. Mizzou basketball coach Cuonzo Martin said the senior can travel and practice with the team this week.

Mizzou, a team that has never made it to the Final Four, is the No. 8 seed in the West Region.

Florida State had an overall record of 20-11, going 9-9 in ACC play.

The game will tip off after the Xavier vs. play-in victor game, which begins at 6:20 p.m. TBS will air the game.

The Tigers have been shredded by the three-point shot in recent weeks, so they'll need to make sure they get a hand up in Cofer's face when he launches it from long range. You have Mike (Porter Jr.) there in the fold.

Porter, a ballyhooed freshman, underwent back surgery after getting hurt in the season opener. "I don't know about that". All four teams were selected for the NCAA tournament. Mizzou lost its first-round game in each of its last three appearances in 2011-13 and last won a game in the 2010 tournament.

"I'm just really glad we get another chance to play and I don't have to end my career on that last game we played", Robertson said.

The round of 64 match-up will be played in Nashville, Tennessee. A one-week punishment would leave Barnett eligible to return for the second round on Sunday should the Tigers advance. The Tigers are back in the NCAA Tournament and they have maybe the best player in the country and nothing to lose. You can also see all 68 teams in the tournament here.
