Nor did he shirk any responsibility when his much-anticipated return didn't end the way he had hoped.
Porter Jr. put up an astonishing 52 points and 23 rebound on his high school Senior Night. But I think we'll be fine. "That doesn't feel good". There is a long history of frustration at Mizzou from the Third Down Game to Norfolk State to the Flea Kicker and so on. Same as it ever was. That's about it. The first trial of the Michael Porter Jr. experiment went exactly as every naysayer said it would. Porter's brother Jontay led Mizzou with 20 points to go along with eight rebounds. In six first-half minutes, Tilmon got two of his own.
Despite Porter Jr. playing his first minutes since November 10, the Tigers still fell to the Georgia Bulldogs in the second round of the SEC Tournament, 62-60.
The perception is Kentucky and Georgia have played close of late, but heading into Friday's quarterfinal matchup in the SEC Tournament, the Cats hold a 10-game win streak over the Bulldogs. Porter Jr. later underwent surgery in Dallas. The Tigers figure to be competitive this March, with or without Porter, which is why Martin and his staff had been patient bringing the freshman along.
ASU Basketball: Missed free throws and bench play the difference
Pritchard and MiKyle McIntosh had 18 points each to help OR rally from a dismal first half. "Those big bodies", Kent said. Chimezie Metu is averaging 15.9 points and 7.4 rebounds while Bennie Boatwright is averaging 13.6 points and two assists.
He's not going to be a wallflower. "His mindset is still the same person".
Can we at least have a concrete answer as to whether he will play or not this season? The odds for him to play well were stacked against him. Blame it on Porter Jr. if you'd like, but he was the second-best offensive option this team had tonight, and he shot 5 of 17. When the SEC's No. 5 seed loses to the No. 12 seed in a home environment and scores its fewest points since January 20, it's a legitimate question. Now they're disjointed and unsure, and double-digit scorers Robertson and Barnett scored seven and three points, respectively, against Georgia.
Against these three teams in the regular season though, Missouri had a mix of success.
Mizzou missed 14 straight shots as Georgia enjoyed a 19-2 run to squelch any and all good vibes the Tigers had earned to open the game.
Nations Gather in Chile to Sign New Version of TPP, Without US
Chilean Foreign Minister Heraldo Munoz said the deal sent a powerful signal that worldwide trade was still very much alive. He said Australian farmers, manufacturers, service providers and small businesses would be the big winners...
Mizzou's next run would begin with under five minutes to go.
"Maybe a step slow", Martin would say, evaluating a program-altering player who has now played 25 total minutes for that program.
Mark Fox on the SEC Network said he wasn't concerned about his team not being fresh even though they have already played two games in the SEC Tournament.
