COLUMBIA — The Missouri men's basketball team's season will continue next weekend in Omaha, Neb.

The Tigers received the No. 2 seed in the West Region of the NCAA tournament and will face No. 15 seed Norfolk State in their first game Friday. Norfolk State (25-9) finished second in the MEAC during the regular season and won its conference tournament. 

If Missouri wins its first round game, it will face the winner of a game between No. 7-seed Florida (23-10) and No. 10-seed Virginia (22-9).

If Missouri wins both of its first two games, it will play the following weekend in Phoenix.
