Missouri guard Jordan Barnett suspended 1 game after DWI arrest

Jordan Barnett speaks to reporters after Mizzou basketball's loss against Georgia on March 8

It's been an up-and-down season for the Florida State Seminoles, but will end with an NCAA Tournament appearance. The victor of the Florida State vs. Missouri game will face the victor of the Xavier vs.

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

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 time, the 'Noles would be playing a No. 1 regional seed if they advance and Xavier wins its first-round game.

Out at Bridgestone Arena on Friday, we've got NCAA Tournament opening-round college basketball action coming between the Florida State Seminoles and the Missouri Tigers.

In Cuonzo Martin's first season, he guided the Tigers to a 20-12 record and a top four finish in the SEC Conference. Xavier opens with the victor of Wednesday's play-in game between North Carolina Central and Texas Southern.

According to a report from Rivals.com's Gabe DeArmond, Barnett was arrested early Saturday morning on suspicion on driving under the influence. The University of Missouri student athlete handbook states a driving while intoxicated charge mandates a week minimum suspension.

This is Mizzou's 27th appearance in the NCAA Tournament. FSU dropped three of its last four games, including a first-round exit at last week's ACC Tournament, but Leonard Hamilton's team did enough through the course of the season that they still made the field. The Seminoles were defeated by Louisville in the ACC Tournament, while Missouri was bounced by Georgia. The Seminoles have a 2-1 record against the Tigers but the last meeting was almost 38 years ago, a 68-64 victory on December 19, 1980, during a holiday tournament.
