Selection Sunday is a day of joy for a lot of teams, and misery for others. Missouri has missed way more often than they’ve hit since joining the SEC. They’ve made the tournament just three times, in 2013, 2018, and again 2021. That’s a 50% hit rate for Frank Haith, a 0% hit rate for Kim Anderson, and a 40% hit rate for Cuonzo Martin. Dennis Gates is about to make his hit rate 100% when the Tigers receive their bid tomorrow.
Most of the ranges have Mizzou between a 6 and a 9 seed, but the consensus seems to be around a 7.
