The NCAA Tournament selection committee agreed the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Missouri Tigers did not do enough for an at-large bid.
Both the Tigers (22-11, 9-9) and the Razorbacks (22-11, 10-8) will likely receive tournament bids from the NIT Sunday night. Missouri had not missed an NCAA Tournament since the 2007-2008 season. Arkansas has not made an NCAA Tournament since that same season.
Missouri swept their rival Arkansas during the regular-season.
