Martin confirms Porter will play in SEC Tournament

Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. shoots baskets before an NCAA college basketball game against Arkansas in Columbia Mo. Porter will make his long-awaited return to the court following lower back surgery when Mis

Their best player is 6'8 senior forward Yante Maten.

Many Missouri fans are calling it quits after Thursday's 62-60 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs, and that's leaving a lot of tickets up for grabs at low prices. The Tigers drew up a play for their leading scorer, Kassius Robertson.

That means it'll be Georgia who gets to take on fourth-seeded Kentucky on Friday in the quarterfinals. Georgia vs Missouri live stream is on WatchESPN. We've got another game coming up soon. Missouri's foul woes were the story.

The exact opposite happened on Thursday, as Missouri shot 34 percent from the floor and both Tilmon and Puryear fouled out.

"We did a poor job of fouling", Robertson said.

Missed free throws by the Bulldogs allowed the Tigers one last chance, and though they executed a flawless inbound play to find Robertson in the corner, it just wasn't his day-or really, any Tiger's day. Michael played just for two minutes in Mizzou's season opener against Iowa State before "tweaking" his hip.

Emergency rooms slammed with opioid overdoses in Missouri and IL
More than 63,000 drug overdose deaths occurred in the country during 2016, and more than 40,000 of those involved opioids . Anne Schuchat explained in a statement. "The fast-moving opioid overdose epidemic continues and is accelerating".

Teshaun Hightower came up big off the bench for Georgia, matching his career high of 13 points.

Missouri will wait until Sunday to figure out where it will go next. He'll get plenty of reason to raise his profile, as he and the University of Missouri head into the Southeastern Conference tournament, one stop before the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament - aka "March Madness" - kicks off. Georgia proceeded to score 19 of the next 21 points, however, taking a commanding lead of their own; Mizzou would never lead again. During the 1982-83 season, she averaged 58.7 points per game. "Sometimes when things aren't going (well), someone tries to step up but we just have to believe in ourselves".

Sexton finished with 27 points, none bigger than his final two.

Anyway, it was nearly poetic, how quickly and perfectly it all went down, and nearly overnight Missouri shape-shifted from a program that finished 8-24 in 2016-17 to a team that legitimately had a chance to reach its first Final Four a year later.

The Missouri Tigers are about to get a major boost at the flawless time.

"I missed some shots I should have made", he said.
