Mizzou returns to NCAA Tournament for first time in 5 seasons

Mizzou Tigers wait anxiously for their name to be called for the NCAA tournament

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.

Wins over Clemson, North Carolina and Florida impressed the Selection Committee, though, so the Noles are in the field of 68. A major disappointment for both fan bases. The Seminoles were defeated by Louisville in the ACC Tournament, while Missouri was bounced by Georgia.

Mizzou won nine, 10 and eight games each of the last three years, but things changed this season under first-year coach Cuonzo Martin during a 20-win regular season within a stronger, deeper Southeastern Conference. The Seminoles have six Quadrant 1 wins (home wins over teams ranked in the Top 30 of the RPI, road wins over teams in the Top 75) and only one loss to a team ranked outside the Top 100 (Wake Forest).

Sean Smith Will Plead Guilty to Assault Charge; Cut by Raiders
But he never played up to that level and the Raiders have chose to cut him instead of paying him $8.5 million this year. Carrie is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday and is free to talk to potential suitors this week.

"I was praying to God we didn't end up in Wichita", he said. The Tigers will have the services of Michael Porter Jr. - who played in only two games due this past season, but has incredible upside. Like I told our guys, and I told them this way back. He transformed his career from a player who played the bench in Texas to a possible National Basketball Association player after his performance as a Tiger. 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. This team has already reached what most fans would say was their number one goal before the season, they've made the dance.

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. So Tiger fans, put on your dancing shoes and get ready for Friday. This is going to be fun!
