Barnett suspended for opening round NCAA Tournament game

Barnett suspended for opening round NCAA Tournament game

After going 20-12 in its first year playing for Cuonzo Martin, eighth-seeded Missouri will play Friday in Nashville, Tennessee, against No. 9 seed Florida State.

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.

Missouri is coming off a disappointing loss to Georgia in the SEC Tournament, but freshman Michael Porter Jr. saw significant action for the first time. All four teams were selected for the NCAA tournament. UF (20-12, 11-7 SEC) will open its tournament run against either St. Bonaventure or UCLA on Thursday.

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

This is a great draw for the Tigers as the West Region is the weakest overall bracket in the tournament.

US, European powers to continue Iran talks this week
Moreover, I remind you that Iran declares, on an nearly daily basis - including recently, its intention to wipe out the State of Israel.

But first things first and that is the Tigers first round matchup against the Seminoles of Florida State. The Seminoles have made the Sweet 16 four times - 1972, 1992, 1993 and 2011. 3 seed last season, Florida State fell in the second round.

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 Florida State Seminoles were awarded the No. 9 seed in the West Region despite defeating the higher-seeded Gators on December 4.

As TBS meandered through the NCAA Tournament brackets on Sunday, the intriguing local scenario still was alive and feasible and seemed semi-inevitable. They made the tourney past year, beating Florida Gulf Coast in the first round before falling to Xavier in the second round. Michigan, Gonzaga and Ohio State round out the top five seeds in the West Region. If he is suspended, it will present new problems for an already thin Tiger team, and mean they will need to lean heavier on the Michael Porter Jr, who is back with the team after missing almost the entire season with an injury.
