Tennessee team won a play-in game and two more in the bracket to reach the Sweet 16.

It's been an up-and-down season for the Florida State Seminoles, but will end with an NCAA Tournament appearance.


With back-to-back tournament appearances, the 'Noles have now made the "Big Dance" in six of the last 10 seasons. The Georgia Bulldogs upset Mizzou in the first-round of the SEC Tournament in St. Louis Thursday.

Martin was pleased with the draw considering the relatively short trip - at least compared to other host sites in San Diego, Pittsburgh and Charlotte, N.C. - and the late Friday tip-off, which gives his team another practice day to work Michael Porter Jr. back into the rotation.

This hurts more than just the team's depth, though, as Barnett was second on the squad with 13.7 points per game and is an anchor in the forward rotation with 5.9 rebounds a night. FSU was the third seed when it lost to the 11th-seeded Musketeers 91-66 past year. Should the Tigers win that matchup, they will likely face 1-seed Xavier on Sunday. VanLeer tore his ACL in the team's final regular-season game, a win over Arkansas.


Over on the Missouri side, they're now 20-12 this year. The team has also lost point guards Blake Harris, C.J.

The difference was Florida State's success against ranked and Quadrant 1 teams.

FSU recorded important home wins against highly rated teams such as North Carolina, Clemson and Miami, and the 'Noles also recorded significant road wins at Florida and Louisville.


Prediction: Missouri is one of the hardest teams to project.
