2013 NCAA Tournament: Missouri will face Colorado State on Thursday in Lexington

Jeff Bottari

Well, we didn't have to wait long to find out who/where Missouri would be playing in the NCAA Tournament. In the first foursome revealed on the NCAA Selection Show, we found that Mizzou will be facing the Colorado State Rams in the 8-9 game of the Midwest Region.

Larry Eustachy's Rams went 25-8 this season, going 11-5 in the tough Mountain West and losing to UNLV in the semifinals of the MWC Tournament. They are one of the few teams in the country with better rebounding numbers than Missouri. Win on the glass, advance to the second round.

The MU-CSU winner will face either Louisville, N.C. A&T or Liberty (okay, it's Louisville) in the Round of 32.
