Jordan Barnett Won't Play in Missouri's NCAA Tournament Opening Game

Jordan Barnett Won't Play in Missouri's NCAA Tournament Opening Game

After going 20-12 in its first year playing for Cuonzo Martin, eighth-seeded Missouri will play Friday in Nashville, Tennessee, against No. 9 seed Florida State.

Florida State head coach Leonard Hamilton has been with the Seminoles for 16 years (since 2002).

The lingering notion that it does is skewed by the fact that college basketball is a study in six degrees of separation, but the truth is the principles for selection, bracketing and seeding just don't lend that kind of latitude to the operation.

Florida St starts a smaller lineup with two 6'8 guys followed by 6'5, 6'4 and 6'1 front court. "There is nothing in Wichita".

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 team has already reached what most fans would say was their number one goal before the season, they've made the dance.

But an NCAA win against a towering and intensely athletic FSU group would be another threshold to certify that and help catapult the program forward.

A spokesman for the University of Missouri Police Department announced Barnett was arrested at 3:26 a.m. local time for failure to drive in a single lane and suspicion of driving while intoxicated. A one-week punishment would leave Barnett eligible to return for the second round on Sunday should the Tigers advance. The victor of that game will likely play No. 1 Xavier on Sunday.

"It'll be the next man [in] and we keep moving", Martin said Sunday, according to the Post-Dispatch. Meanwhile, one of their star players is now out for the game because he got a DWI the weekend ahead of the tournament.

"It's what it is", Martin said.

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.
