Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. Ready To Play Thursday

Canisius has an enrollment of 3,171, while Mizzou's enrollment is almost 10 times larger (30,870). They'll have to replace Barnett and Robertson's scoring. He took seven more shots than the second-most prolific shooter on his team. No, he didn't get the start-he entered with 17:22 remaining in the first half.

There is always moments of angst leading up to game time about whether he would play.

That doesn't make the SEC's biggest stage a trivial one for Cuonzo Martin's team by any means, though.

Teams must now reassess how Porter stacks up with a field that's seemingly gotten stronger since opening day.

Robertson has been one of the biggest surprises in the Southeastern Conference, and a welcomed one for Mizzou.

Martin landed in Missouri after three seasons at the University of California.

Still, those 17 shots were partly a product of foul trouble that forced Porter to play more minutes than Martin envisioned. With their loss on Thursday, they fall to 20-12 on the season, having played almost the entire year without the No. 2 overall recruit in the 2018 class on the floor. Porter's father, Michael Sr., told ESPN a week ago that his son's back is 100 percent healthy - and might even be better than before the surgery - but that it would take time for him to regain his burst.

The Tigers turned to Micahel's younger brother, freshman forward Jontay Porter, and graduate transfer Kassius Robertson to help guide the team through a tough year that saw freshmen Blake Harris and C.J. Roberts transfer and junior guard Terrence Phillips suspended indefinitely. In a blink of an eye, it seemed as if Michael's season was over, but good news!

In his only appearance for the Tigers, Porter scored two points and grabbed a pair of rebounds in two minutes before exiting the game.

Michael Porter's back is good enough to be back in the lineup.

Georgia finished the season with a 7-11 SEC record that landed them a 12th seed in the SEC Tournament.

Martin leads Mizzou into the postseason with seven available scholarship players and eight total. The result? 88 points per game and four wins all by double-digit margins, including an avenging statement in Lexington over Mizzou.

Mizzou has outrebounded its opponents in 21-of-31 games this season. "We played, to me, about as bad as we played offensively, besides him, as we have all year". The freshman from East St. Louis, Illinois, also pulled down eight rebounds.
