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

Jordan Barnett speaks to reporters after Mizzou basketball's loss against Georgia on March 8

Eighth-seeded Missouri (20-12) opposes ninth-seeded Florida State (20-11) in West Regional action on Friday in Nashville, Tenn.

Tigers head basketball coach Cuonzo Martin confirmed the suspension on Sunday night and reinforced that Barnett will not play Friday, March 16 when the Tigers open NCAA Tournament play against Florida State. The Georgia Bulldogs upset Mizzou in the first-round of the SEC Tournament in St. Louis Thursday.

Florida State makes the national tournament for the second year in a row and the sixth time in the past 10 years. Missouri is an at-large selection from the SEC and has a 20-12 overall record and a 10-8 record in conference play.

This will be the Seminoles 16th appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Also, with the Friday-Sunday schedule, the Tigers could have guard Jordan Barnett back for the second round if they beat the Seminoles. It marks the seventh time in school history the Seminoles will appear in consecutive NCAA Tournament with four of those seven times coming under Hamilton. Florida State finished around where it was projected to at the beginning of the season when many sites pegged the Seminoles as a bubble team.

They've already made good on what Martin told them before the season: "You'll be the team that said they turned it around". The two teams are part of the West region, playing in the same bracket as No. 1 seed Xavier.

The Seminoles' season was one of close wins and close losses, but they're not heading into the NCAA Tournament with much momentum.

The Seminoles made it to the Final Four back in 1972, making it to the title game before losing.

Florida, Florida State and Miami - a No. 6 seed in the South Region - were the only schools from Florida to earn invitations. They pose an interesting matchup, since their biggest star Michael Porter Jr. was injured for all but two games in the regular season.
