Georgia spoils Michael Porter Jr.'s return, beats Missouri 62-60

Georgia spoils Michael Porter Jr.'s return, beats Missouri 62-60

"I'm glad we got it out of the way". Georgia proceeded to score 19 of the next 21 points, however, taking a commanding lead of their own; Mizzou would never lead again. Porter leads in rebounds with 6.8 while Blake Harris tops in assists with 3.1 per game. But if all is well, and Missouri does land a tournament bid, the Tigers will hope Thursday held some value as the day Michael Porter was reintegrated into the fold.

The big return of Michael Porter Jr. began with a standing ovation from the Scottrade Center crowd before the freshman even checked into the game.

"With this type of injury, the last thing to come back is your explosiveness, your pop", Porter said. Maten finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Numerous statistics between the teams were relatively even.

Some close to the program were surprised he didn't play on Tuesday against Vanderbilt, because he's looked good in practices and expressed eagerness to compete.

The Bulldogs spoiled Porter's return and earned a 62-60 victory against the hometown Tigers in St. Louis. Jordan Geist, Jontay Porter and Porter Jr. each got tagged with a pair as well.

But then the Tigers survived, knocking off No. 18 Tennessee and No. 23 Florida, and it was Jontay Porter who established himself as one of Missouri's best players. If the Tigers make the NCAA tournament, it will be interesting to see his role Missouri's offense. He didn't have his legs fully under him, having air-balled a three-pointer early and gotten blocked at the rim on two separate drives. Since the victor of each 8-9 game in the NCAA Tournament has to play that regional's No. 1 seed, Missouri would love to boost itself up to a No. 7 and set up more favorable matchups. Porter Jr. wants to play today when the Tigers take the floor in St. Louis, but I'm not trusting him until he actually plays.

Or Jaren Jackson Jr. was on track to be the only college player in 25 years to average three blocks and a three-pointer in fewer than 30 minutes per game. Both teams only clashed once with Missouri during the regular season, and the Tigers were winners against each. That may not be the case anymore, though, as they seem to have figured out something that's working down the stretch. Porter, anyway, has time to rest and sharpen his game before the next time - potentially the final time, considering he could leave school to enter the National Basketball Association draft after Missouri's season ends - he suits up for the Tigers.
