Missouri selected as NCAA Tourney 9 seed

COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou men's basketball team and head coach Frank Haith took time to meet with the media Sunday evening at Mizzou Arena after being selected as a No. 9 seed in the 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. The appearance for the Tigers is their fifth consecutive berth and 26th overall selection. Below is what Haith and his team had to say about the first-round matchup with Colorado State.

"Obviously we're extremely excited about getting back to the NCAA tournament. We play a Colorado State team that we're going to learn a lot more about tonight, but from what I do know: I know that Larry Eustachy is a really good coach. I know they're big; they're one of the better rebounding teams in the country. Colton Iverson was at Minnesota and at my time at Miami we played against him and I know he's a load inside. We know we have our work cut out for us, but we're excited about being in a tournament and Lexington. Going back to a place we've already played in their building where they've got great fans. In this league, there are no fans greater than theirs, than ours, but they know basketball so we're excited about getting down there." -Frank Haith, Missouri Head Basketball Coach
