Michael Porter Jr. Will Play in SEC Tournament After Back Injury
10 March, 2018, 01:59 | Author: Alyssa Little
Michael Porter Jr, the Missouri Tigers' freshman forward who is projected to be a top pick in the 2018 National Basketball Association draft, will return to action tomorrow in the SEC Tournament. Who knows? When Porter Jr., the number one recruit in this year's crop of freshman has played a grand total of 127 seconds this season after undergoing back surgery about three months ago.
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.
Porter wasn't exactly efficient in his return to the floor, knocking down just 29.4 percent of his shots from the field. Still, with Porter, Missouri showed itself as a group that could challenge the top teams in college basketball. Mizzou played Georgia back on January 10th at Mizzou Arena in Columbia and the Tigers dominated that game from start to finishing winning 68-56. Robertson had a good look and let the shot go as thousands all held their breath.
But he missed the next three games to end the regular season.
This was a program that, five years earlier, was a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament before Norfolk State, of all programs, upset the Tigers.
"I'm not really concerned with what seed we get", graduate transfer Kassius Robertson said.
Subbing players in and out on what seemed like every other possession, Missouri lost all of the offensive rhythm it started the game with.
"They're a great team, great defense, great physicality, but that's mostly us when we can't score", said Jontay Porter, who led the Tigers with 20 points. "We were just missing shots". And I think part of that was that guys were in foul trouble, too. Until then, Martin's team has time to further integrate Porter into the plans. "They beat this team (Georgia) once without me".
"Well, it was $40 a piece inside so yeah we got a good deal out here". "Sometimes when things aren't going (well), someone tries to step up but we just have to believe in ourselves".
He played 23 minutes off the bench in what was eventually a Tigers loss, scoring 12 points and added eight rebounds on 5-of-17 shooting.
