Former Episcopal School of Dallas standout Phil Pressey and his Missouri Tigers got a No. 9 seed in the NCAA tournament. Mizzou (23-10) will take on Colorado State (25-8) on Thursday in Lexington, Kent.

The bad news for the Tigers is they will likely take on No. 1-seed Louisville (29-5) in the second round, provided they are able to get past the Rams.

Pressey, a junior point guard, is averaging 11.6 points, 7.1 assists. and 3.4 rebounds per game.
