We're In! Seminoles Selected To Play in NCAA Tournament

We're In! Seminoles Selected To Play in NCAA Tournament

They will play Florida State in Nashville on Friday with the victor of that likely facing one seeded Xavier.

For the last three seasons, the tournament selection show was a cruel joke for Missouri fans as the program bottomed out under former coach Kim Anderson, winning just nine, 10 and eight games.

Three days after Georgia eliminated the Tigers from the SEC Tournament in St. Louis, Martin's team gathered on Norm Stewart Court to watch the bracket unveiling Sunday, backed by a sparse crowd of fans for the team's watch party.

But this is the NCAA Tournament where anything can happen, especially when you have the wild card known as Michael Porter Jr.

Preview: The Missouri Tigers finished the year with a 20-12 record and a 10-8 mark in the SEC.

"I'll just be very, very clear", he said at the time.

This is a great draw for the Tigers as the West Region is the weakest overall bracket in the tournament. 3 seed last season, Florida State fell in the second round. The Seminoles will face No. 8 Missouri in the first round on Friday in Nashville. For head coach Leonard Hamilton, it's the ninth tournament appearance of his career.

The Tigers go into the tournament as the eighth seed in the West Region. This team has already reached what most fans would say was their number one goal before the season, they've made the dance.

As most experts predicted, the strength of the Seminoles' quality wins apparently outweighed any concerns about their late-season losses. Florida State made its lone Final Four appearance in 1972.

Florida, Florida State and Miami - a No. 6 seed in the South Region - were the only schools from Florida to earn invitations. If he is suspended, it will present new problems for an already thin Tiger team, and mean they will need to lean heavier on the Michael Porter Jr, who is back with the team after missing almost the entire season with an injury.
