Mizzou forward Jordan Barnett arrested for DWI

Florida State had an overall record of 20-11, going 9-9 in ACC play.

Missouri senior guard Jordan Barnett will miss the school's NCAA Tournament opener while serving a one-game team suspension following an arrest on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

When the event that gives Selection Sunday its name began at 6 p.m., Florida only waited 10 minutes to learn that it was in the tournament.

Three days after Georgia eliminated the Tigers from the SEC Tournament in St. Louis, Martin's team gathered on Norm Stewart Court to watch the bracket unveiling Sunday, backed by a sparse crowd of fans for the team's watch party.

Florida State makes the national tournament for the second year in a row and the sixth time in the past 10 years.

"I was praying to God we wouldn't end up in Wichita", he said.

With back-to-back tournament appearances, the 'Noles have now made the "Big Dance" in six of the last 10 seasons. 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. Florida State has now participated in the postseason in 13 of Hamilton's 16 seasons at Florida State. The Seminoles will face No. 8 Missouri in the first round on Friday in Nashville.

They've already made good on what Martin told them before the season: "You'll be the team that said they turned it around".

The Tigers go into the tournament as the eighth seed in the West Region.

As most experts predicted, the strength of the Seminoles' quality wins apparently outweighed any concerns about their late-season losses. The 2018 tournament will mark FSU's 16th appearance.

Missouri is led by Kassius Robertson and will have the services of freshman phenom Michael Porter Jr., who only played in two games. Michigan, Gonzaga and Ohio State round out the top five seeds in the West Region.
