Mizzou back in the dance, faces Florida State in NCAA first round

Mizzou forward Jordan Barnett arrested on suspicion of DWI

Despite a disappointing second round loss to the Louisville Cardinals in the ACC Tournament, Florida State basketball (20-11, 9-9 ACC) showed enough in the regular season to make the NCAA Tournament.

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. Mizzou added Michael Porter Jr.to the mix after the former 5-star returned from a back injury he suffered in the first game of the season. With a win over Florida State, the Tigers would likely face the No. 1-seeded Xavier Musketeers.

Missouri has suspended forward Jordan Barnett for the Tigers' opening game Friday of the NCAA tournament after the team's second-leading scorer was arrested for suspicion of DWI early Saturday morning. Missouri is an at-large selection from the SEC and has a 20-12 overall record and a 10-8 record in conference play. The victor will go on to play the winner of Xavier and NC Central/Texas Southern.

Martin didn't clarify one way or the other whether Barnett would return if Missouri made the second round. The University of Missouri student athlete handbook states a driving while intoxicated charge mandates a week minimum suspension.

Barnett "will be out and it'll be the next man (in) and we keep moving", Martin said Sunday. I'm not sure how we'll start lineups. The Tigers won a total of 27 games in Kim Anderson's three-year tenure as coach. The Seminoles participated in the NCAA in a school-record four consecutive seasons from 2009-12 and will now participate in consecutive NCAA Tournaments after playing in the field in 2017. If this policy is followed, Barnett would miss at least one NCAA Tournament game.

The two teams split games in 1976 and 1977, both winning on their home courts.

This result was in question as late as two weeks ago.
