MU seeded eighth, matched up with Florida State in Nashville

MU seeded eighth, matched up with Florida State in Nashville

It's Mizzou's first NCAA tournament in five years. Florida, which was eliminated from the tournament on Friday, watched from home and waited.

The Noles scored 90 or more points nine times this year, and have three players - Phil Cofer, Terance Mann and Braian Angola-Rodas - averaging around 13 points per game.

And Loyola out of the Valley will play Miami Thursday in Dallas.

The Gators started the season with thunder and briefly led the nation in scoring.

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

"Anytime you work hard and get yourselves into the NCAA tournament it's always a great thing".

CBS college basketball analyst Seth Davis already put Florida on upset alert by predicting that regardless of who wins between UCLA and St. Bonaventure, the Gators will lose their first game. 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.

The appearance is Florida's second in a row. They fell to SC to miss the Final Four. The Seminoles have played in the NCAA Tournament in the 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2017 and 2018.

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.

Mizzou, a team that has never made it to the Final Four, is the No. 8 seed in the West Region. They will play Florida State in Nashville on Friday with the victor of that likely facing one seeded Xavier.

The Seminoles' season was one of close wins and close losses, but they're not heading into the NCAA Tournament with much momentum. FSU lost to Xavier 91-66 in the second round of last year's tournament. They pose an interesting matchup, since their biggest star Michael Porter Jr. was injured for all but two games in the regular season.
