Well, before the year began, Michael Porter Jr., was ranked ahead of all of them. He finished with 16 points, scoring 13 in the second half as the Tigers tried to rally.
The Seminoles could endure their biggest test of the season without their most experienced player, but Mann hopes to play against Xavier.
It was only a year ago that Florida State was upset by Xavier, losing by 25 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, leading to 12 long months of "what if" and "what happened?" "For us to know exactly what to expect from him is virtually impossible".
Missouri, which lost in the first round for the fourth straight time in the tournament, tried to take advantage of Florida State's poor 3-point defense by shooting its first three shots of the night from behind the arc.
"We are getting to that Sweet 16", MU women's basketball star Sophie Cunningham said. Missouri has no pressure on them this year and that's what makes them a risky team. Playing in the West Region, the Tigers are making their 27th appearance in the tournament and their first since 2013.

Kassius Robertson had 19 points for Missouri. Mfiondu Kabengele led a well-balanced Florida attack with 14 points and 12 rebounds. Florida State also kept the sharp-shooting Tigers to 3-for-14 shooting from three-point range in the first half.
This was just the third game this season for Porter, who suffered a back injury in Missouri's season opener. Braian Angola's 3-pointer with a minute remaining polished off the run and gave Florida State a 42-20 cushion at the half. However, Missouri's stay in the SEC tournament was just as long as Florida State's, losing their opening matchup in the 2nd round to #12 seed Georgia. Even with another week of practice since the Southeastern Conference Tournament, he looked rusty. The Tigers have never gone farther than the Elite 8. By the time Missouri scored again, Jontay Porter's jumper with 5:08 left only pulled the Tigers within 65-46.
"They're going to forget about you, but you know you're going to bounce back better than ever", Porter said. "The best thing we have to do is keep our composure and just keep doing us". But they came in as the ACC's third-highest scoring team, averaging 81.8 points a game, and they showed off their offense by smothering Missouri in points. The Eagles lead the country with an average of 33.1 three-point attempts per game. Jordan Barnett, the second-leading scorer, is suspended for this game after being arrested for driving while intoxicated last weekend.
This game is the definition of a coin flip and I think it's the tightest of any of the first round matchups in this year's tournament.
