Guess the Score: Will Mizzou and SLU Advance in the NCAA Tournament?

Do you think Mizzou and SLU will win their first NCAA men's basketball tournament game?

If you're reading this post, you've undoubtedly already filled out a bracket for the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

Now, why not try your hand at another fun game? 

For the first time since the 1999-2000 season, both Mizzou and Saint Louis University are playing in college basketball's most prolific postseason tournament. 

Both squads open their tournament schedules on Friday:

  • No. 2-seeded Mizzou against Norfolk State at 3:40 p.m. The game will be aired on TNT
  • No. 9-seeded SLU against Memphis at 5:50 p.m. The game will be aired on TBS, with the radio call available on Creve Coeur-based .

varsity basketball coach Kelvin Lee is a former SLU assistant coach. He told Patch SLU will need to control the tempo given Memphis' fast-paced attack. Three-point shooting and defense will be keys.

Here at Patch, we're obviously pulling for the hometown teams? What about you?
