Mizzou men’s basketball is dancing for the first time since 2013.
The Tigers (20-12) received the 8 seed in the West regional and will play Florida State on Friday at 8:50 p.m. in Nashville, Tennessee.
Mizzou will be without Jordan Barnett on Friday. He was officially suspended after his arrest on suspicion of DWI early Saturday morning. Barnett will travel and practice with the team during his suspension, and could return if the Tigers make the second round.
It has been five years since the Tigers made the big dance. Mizzou will look for its first NCAA Tournament win since 2010 when they defeated Clemson.
