Missouri stumbled on the road early, but have been on a roll down the stretch, improving from 23rd to 18th on www.kenpom.com. Their top trio’s Value Add is not that high, but with future NBA player Phil Pressey running the show and not even in the top three, and center Alex Oriakhi’s experience winning a national title at UConn, this senior dominated team will not be stunned by one big player as happened last year in the opening round upset by Norfolk State. Unfortunately they face a tough draw, with a strong Colorado State team followed by the best team in the country, Louisville.
