Mizzou forward Jordan Barnett arrested for DWI

A more experienced Jarrett Stidham should mean more opportunities for Auburn’s receivers in 2018

You can check out the entire NCAA Tournament bracket here. Martin did say Barnett can practice with the team during the suspension, but is not eligible to play in any games.

For the first time in five years, the Tigers are in the NCAA Tournament.

Even though the vast majority of bracket projections had the Tigers safely in the field, pegged by most as an 8 or 9 seed, the players and coaches erupted when Missouri popped up on the screen. Barnett was suspended by the school for one week after being arrested early Saturday morning, March 10 on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Like I told our guys, and I told them this way back.

This is Missouri's 27th appearance in the NCAA Tournament, though their 1994 appearance was vacated. The Tigers will have the services of Michael Porter Jr. - who played in only two games due this past season, but has incredible upside.

The Seminoles (20-11, 9-9) will need to drastically improve if they hope to surpass their second-round exit to Xavier in the tournament last season, and a disappointing finish to this season.

Tributes were paid before the contest and play was stopped on 13 minutes so fans and players could applaud the ex-Italy worldwide .

"I'm just really glad we get another chance to play and I don't have to end my career on that last game we played", Robertson said. To be in the Big Dance is exciting.

This will be the Seminoles 16th appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Missouri was awarded the eight seed and will take on Florida State in their first tournament game in Nashville.

The selection committee released its field Sunday night. A one-week punishment would leave Barnett eligible to return for the second round on Sunday should the Tigers advance. "You'll be the team that turned it around", said Martin.
