Missouri was awarded a No. 9 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Tigers will face No. 8 seed Rams of Colorado State in their first game on Thursday.
Missouri is the No. 9 seed in the Midwest region, where Louisville is the No. 1 seed. If the Missouri beats Colorado State, it would most likely face Louisville on Saturday in a rematch of a November game that Louisville won 84-61.
Just two other SEC teams were selected to go to the NCAA Tournament. Florida, the regular season champion, was awarded the No. 3 seed in the South region, and Ole Miss, the tournament champion, was awarded the No. 12 seed in the West region.
