His brother, Michael, a projected lottery pick who played just two minutes in the season opener and later had surgery, finished with 12 points and eight rebounds, but shot just 5 for 17 from the field. His 20 points on 5 of 8 shooting-including four threes-led the team, while a couple of his eight rebounds were on the offensive glass, creating crucial extra possessions.

Nearly as soon as the school announced Porter Jr. was having season-ending back surgery fans and a portion of the college basketball world began doing the math on his potential return. And the Tigers can practice together with that basic understanding of what Porter's role will be when the NCAA tourney rolls around.

An All-SEC First-Team selection, graduate senior guard Kassius Robertson began his career at the only school to offer him a D-I scholarship, Canisius, of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC).

"Yeah, we missed some shots that we typically make", Robertson said afterwards. "Instead of a 40-inch vertical, it's 37. That's part of it". A minute later, he nabbed his first rebound, and after running the length of the court, got his first points on an layup. The 6-foot-10 forward has an elite combination of size, length and athleticism.

"I always wanted to be the kind of player who makes a difference", Michael Porter Jr. told reporters last autumn, a few weeks before the beginning of his freshman season and a new era at Missouri. They had two minutes of Michael Porter in November and nothing since until Thursday, when he did not magically morph into a program savior at the last minute. While Porter shot a low percentage, Mizzou outscored Georgia while he was on the floor and got outscored when he was off it. Porter showed an aggressive that has come and gone at times this season from start to finish. "There's a whole other week and however much longer for all of us to get better and for me to get even more healthy". Unfortunately for him, he is being thrust right into the fire, as March Madness is upon us.

Said Martin: "I think we'll be fine because now they've had a chance to play with them".

If Missouri gets this far, the breadth of potential opponents is too great and the odds of each matchup too low, so we won't bother you with any speculation.
