COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri basketball fans can join the Tigers on Sunday afternoon at Mizzou Arena at a public watch party for the NCAA Tournament selection show.

With 28 wins and just four losses heading into a Friday night Big 12 tournament semifinal match against Texas, fifth-ranked Missouri can count on a high tournament seed.

A Big 12 tournament title win on Saturday could even earn the Tigers a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament as they attempt to reach the school's first Final Four.

Doors open at 4 p.m. Sunday, with the selection show starting at 5 p.m. Parking is free, as is popcorn and soda.

The first 1,000 fans will receive a commemorative poster. Coach Frank Haith and some players will speak before the selection show begins.
