Guess the Score: Will Mizzou and SLU Advance in the NCAA Tournament?

Do you think Mizzou and SLU will win their first NCAA men's basketball tournament game?

If you're reading this post, you've undoubtedly already filled out a bracket for the NCAA men's basketball tournament, which officially kicked off Tuesday. 

Instead of filling out that second, third, fourth... ninth bracket, why not try your hand at another fun game? 

For the first time since the 1999-2000 season, both Mizzou and Saint Louis University are playing in college basketball's most prolific postseason tournament. 

Both squads open their tournament schedules on Friday:

  • No. 2-seeded Mizzou against Norfolk State at 3:40 p.m. The game will be aired on TNT
  • No. 9-seeded SLU against Memphis at 5:50 p.m. The game will be aired on TBS

Here at Patch, we're obviously pulling for the hometown teams? What about you? 

Leave us your prediction—outcome and score, and why you're predicting the way you are—and see how you stack up against other local future-readers throughout the St. Louis-area.

Mizzou 89 Norfolk 73 Mizzou is on a mission but willrelax towards near end of game and save some for 2nd round. St. Louis loses 77-69. Memphis "TIGERS" are almost as quick as "TIGERS " from Columbia. Love Billikens but Memphis is sleeper in tournament. T. Logger

Hope you're right, Tom. Mizzou just doesn't seem to bring it in the tournament though.

Mizzou 82, Norfolk 67. Mizzou traditionally fizzles in March, but they should have this one easily. SLU had an amazing season, but they will lose by 20. Memphis is baddd.
