The Grand Hoedown

Tigers make field of 68
by MizzMatt

"Grab your partner, dosey-doe, swing 'em round and don't let go."  It's that time of year again, as we head into the middle of March.  March Madness, the Big Dance, the Grand Hoedown...whatever you call it, it's time for the NCAA Tourney.

The University of Missouri Tiger basketball team could breath easy following Monday night's win over Texas Tech, as it guaranteed them a berth in the field of 68.  The only sweating they'd have to endure is where they'd be seeded and whom they would play.

Tiger fans can sweat no more of the small stuff.

Now, there are bigger fish to fry.  The Tigers (23-10) will go into Washington D.C. on Thursday as an 11 seed in the tournament's west bracket.  They will tip off against the 6 seed Cincinnati Bearcats (25-8) in the Verizon Center.
