Tigers are Tucson bound


The Missouri Tigers weren't sweating prior to the NCAA Baseball Tournament Selection Show. By virtue of winning the Big 12 tournament with an 8-7 win over Oklahoma on Sunday, the Tigers knew they were in the field of 64. They just didn't know where.

Mizzou is headed to the Tucson regional as the four seed. Arizona is the top seed in the regional but is not among the top eight seeds nationally. Two-seed New Mexico State and three-seed Louisville round out the regional.

The Tigers enter the tournament at 32-26 on the season, but on a five-game winning streak. Mizzou beat Kansas in the final game of the regular season and then won four straight to take home the conference tournament championship.

The Wildcats are 38-17 on the season. New Mexico State is 35-22 while Lousville is 39-20.

Mizzou was 10-14 in the Big 12 regular season. This is the Tigers' ninth trip to the NCAA Tournament under Tim Jamieson, but their first since 2009.

The Tigers start regional play on Friday at 10 p.m. Central time against Arizona. The game will be broadcast on ESPNU, as will every game of the Tucson Regional. The winner of the regional will face the winner of the Chapel Hill Regional, which features North Carolina, East Carolina and St. John's in the Super Regional round.
