A pair of Missouri teams headed to NCAA Tournament

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Winning the Big 12 tournament was not quite enough to earn a No. 1 NCAA tournament seed for Missouri. The Tigers (30-4) are seeded second in the West and will open the tourney Friday against No. 15 seed Norfolk State.

Saint Louis (25-7) is in the tournament for the first time since 2000 as a No. 9 seed in the West, opening against Memphis on Friday. The winner will likely play No. 1 seed Michigan State in the second round on Sunday.

The Billikens finished second in the Atlantic 10 and lost to Xavier in the semifinals of the conference tournament.
