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

Mizzou's March is off to a disappointing start. The game featured superstar freshman Michael Porter, Jr. The Tigers will face Florida State in the first round.

The Missouri Tigers are dancing in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in five seasons.

Here are 5 things to know about the Seminoles. He returned to action Thursday and scored 12 points as the Tigers lost 62-60 to Georgia in the quarterfinals of the Southeastern Conference tournament at St. Louis.

They will play the aforementioned Seminoles from Florida State, the 9th seed, in Nashville, with an approximate tip off time of 8:50 PM Central time on Friday, March 16.




FSU recorded important home wins against highly rated teams such as North Carolina, Clemson and Miami, and the 'Noles also recorded significant road wins at Florida and Louisville. Florida State has now participated in the postseason in 13 of Hamilton's 16 seasons at Florida State.

Overall, the Noles have made 16 appearances in March Madness, last making the Sweet 16 in 2011. That's good for 29th in the country. Barnett is Missouri's second-leading scorer and rebounder.

Potentially losing Barnett would be devastating to Mizzou's NCAA Tournament chances. Barnett is second on the team in scoring this year and averages 13.7 points per game along with 5.9 rebounds per game. In that time, the Tigers have had six head coaches - Quin Snyder, Melvin Watkins, Mike Anderson, Frank Haith, Kim Anderson and Cuonzo Martin.
