Florida State advances past Missouri, 67-54

Now, FSU - especially after their performance late Friday night - has a chance at redemption against the team that ended their historic campaign last season.

Central Michigan 78, LSU 69: Tinara Moore scored 25 points to help 11th-seeded Central Michigan get its first women's NCAA Tournament win. Jordan Barnett was suspended from Missouri's first-round game after being arrested for driving while intoxicated last week.

"Georgia is a really good team and we consider this team like a mini Georgia, just not with the height", Cunningham.

Who We Like: Missouri has a lot stacked against it.

Florida Gulf Coast committed just one turnover and took a 41-32 lead into break.

Williams scored 21 points and calmly pushed the pace on offense as the Cardinal created opportunities in transition.

Even when Frericks and Porter returned for the second half, Cunningham was Mizzou's only consistent source of offense.

"It's an upset in terms of seeding, but we definitely came in with the mindset that this was a game we can win if we executed at a high level", Smesko said. Braian Angola's 3-pointer with a minute remaining polished off the run and gave Florida State a 42-20 cushion at the half.

After sitting out almost the entire season, Missouri freshman phenom Michael Porter Jr. struggled immensely, failing to catch rhythm in the first half. Knocking down deep three-pointers and leading Marshall's potent offensive attack, the Thundering Herd scored 47 second-half points to run past the Shockers.

The previous three seasons of Mizzou basketball has been buried and a foundation of something better built on top.

In this season alone, Cunningham's making more shots while shooting less, going 176-for-327 from the field.

FSU will now rematch with Xavier, who they lost to in the 2017 NCAA Tournament.

Ohio State 87, George Washington 45: Stephanie Mavunga scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as Ohio State routed George Washington.

I thought our guys did a very good job defending the post and getting out in transition. Porter made 4-of-9 shots and scored eight points. Missouri senior guard Kassius Robertson notched 19 points and four rebounds.

As for the Seminoles, they will try to avenge last season's blowout loss to Xavier, which put a sour end to a historic season.

Mizzou, coached by former St. Ambrose player and coach Robin Pingeton, won its SEC Tournament opener and earned a third straight NCAA berth, the first time the program has done so since 1984-86, but missed out on earning at least one victory in three straight tournaments for the first time in school history. With their lead seemingly at its most vulnerable, FSU stunned Missouri by reeling off 15 straight points that snuffed out the Tigers' comeback bid and sealed a 67-54 win in front of 17,549 fans.

"I don't know that I can think of too many games that Sophie has had a bad game". "Hopefully I have to see what the doctors say to see if I'll be able to go".
