NCAA Tournament could define college career of Michael Porter Jr

NCAA Tournament could define college career of Michael Porter Jr”

For the seventh time in his 10 seasons as a head coach, Martin has won 20 games.

In Barnett's absence, Michael Porter Jr., who came off the bench in his second career game against Georgia in the SEC Tournament this week, could get the nod as a starter.

This is Missouri's 27th appearance in the NCAA Tournament, though their 1994 appearance was vacated. Mizzoui will play in the West Regional.

The game will tip off after the Xavier vs. play-in victor game, which begins at 6:20 p.m. TBS will air the game.

Missouri last played Florida State in 1980, where the Tigers fell short, 68-64.

Preview: The Missouri Tigers finished the year with a 20-12 record and a 10-8 mark in the SEC. They made the tourney past year, beating Florida Gulf Coast in the first round before falling to Xavier in the second round. The No. 8 seeded Tigers will open the tourney against the No. 9 seeded Florida State Seminoles in Nashville.

Here are 5 things to know about the Seminoles. They are also playing on a Friday, which gives them an extra day of practice.

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. Barnett, arrested Saturday morning in Columbia for a DWI, has officially been suspended for the first game of the NCAA Tournament, Cuonzo Martin told reporters at a post Selection Show press conference.

With Barnett's suspension, Missouri is now down to only seven scholarship players.

We will find out by Friday night.
