Mizzou’s NCAA path is revealed

Missouri has known for at least a few weeks that it was headed for the NCAA Tournament. Even Dennis Gates said after Saturday’s SEC Tournament semifinal loss to Alabama that he just “hopes we get in,” everyone had the Tigers safely in the field for most of the second half of the season.

Now they know where they are going and who they are playing against.

Mizzou was placed in a 7-seed in the Southern Region, taking on 10-seed Utah State, with Arizona as the 2-seed in the region.

“I want to encourage all of you to continue to support this team and this program,” Gates said. “We are excited to continue this national basketball holiday of Squad Sunday.”

The Tigers play Thursday in Sacramento, California. Game times will be announced later tonight.

Missouri enters the tournament 24-9 this season, after losing 72-61 to Alabama on Saturday. Mizzou returns to the NCAA Tournament after missing last season. In its final appearance in 2021, Missouri lost to Oklahoma in the opening round 72-68 in Indianapolis. The Tigers have not won an NCAA Tournament game since they defeated Clemson 86-78 in the first round on March 19, 2010. That spans 12 seasons, five tournaments and 4,742 days.

Everyone here already has insurance (or should). Everyone here is also cheering for the Tigers (or they should). In college sports, the hot button problem is NIL. A school cannot compete like it did a few years ago without a robust NIL collective. Inflation is the main problem in our economy. Here’s your chance to see how you can save money on something that the state requires you to have on your car and your lender requires you to have on your house. Oh and by the way, just a quote from James’ office will raise a donation on your behalf to PowerMizzou’s fund with Every True Tiger Foundation, Mizzou’s preferred NIL collective. Blink if you like to save money. Blink twice if you want to do everything you can to make your favorite college program as competitive as possible in the SEC.
