Mizzou returns to NCAA Tournament for first time in 5 seasons

Mizzou returns to NCAA Tournament for first time in 5 seasons

The victor will all but likely play No. 1 seeded Xavier, the fourth overall No. 1 seed, which the Musketeers earned their first ever No. 1 seed in school history.

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

Missouri is coming off a disappointing loss to Georgia in the SEC Tournament, but freshman Michael Porter Jr. saw significant action for the first time.

No. 12 seed South Dakota State figures to give fifth-seeded Ohio State a fight.

This is the highest Mizzou has ever been seeded in program history.

Wins over Clemson, North Carolina and Florida impressed the Selection Committee, though, so the Noles are in the field of 68.

Rashford's Goal Against Liverpool Was Eerily Similar To Ronaldo's In 2007
The 20-year-old's opening goal was pretty much the same one Cristiano Ronaldo scored against Dynamo Kiev in 2007. He is doing well, he has come in and he has got the right mentality and he has shown the manager what he can do.

Florida St starts a smaller lineup with two 6'8 guys followed by 6'5, 6'4 and 6'1 front court. The Tigers will have the services of Michael Porter Jr. - who played in only two games due this past season, but has incredible upside. He averages 23.8 points and 10.4 rebounds.

With Barnett's suspension, Missouri is now down to only seven scholarship players. On paper this looks like a bad matchup for the Tigers as FSU has the offense to shoot the lights out and the size to shut us down on the defensive side. The NCAA will announce game time and announces later in the week.

The SEC came in second with eight teams in the NCAA Tournament as Missouri joined Auburn, Tennessee, Florida, Kentucky Arkansas, Texas A&M, and Alabama to make the Big Dance. We've managed to get to this point.

There is nothing more unsafe than a team playing with house money and nothing to lose.

The No. 8 seed Missouri Tigers will take on the No. 9 seed Florida State Seminoles this week in the First Round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament. This is going to be fun!
