As the University of Missouri men's basketball team looks to begin its trek to St. Louis for the SEC Tournament in St. Louis, they might have Michael Porter Jr., the likely NBA top-5 pick in the upcoming June draft.

Michael Porter Jr. finally made his glorious return to the Missouri Tigers on Thursday afternoon.

When Michael Porter Jr. checked into a college basketball game for the first time since November 10th, there was no score.

Porter joins current junior Kevin Puryear (Blue Springs, Mo.) as Tigers to have earned SEC All-Freshman Team recognition.

2nd winter storm hits U.S. east coast
However, the American model shows the storm moving much closer, potentially bringing another nor'easter near the coast. She said many trees that crashed into cars and homes and blocked streets during the last storm had yet to be removed.

Still, it was Porter's 3-pointer with a minute left that kept the Tigers' rally alive and trimmed Georgia's lead to three points.

CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reported on February 22 that Porter received full clearance from doctors to resume basketball activities.

Mizzou has a first-round bye and will face No. 12 Georgia (16-14, 7-11) or No. 13 Vanderbilt (12-19, 6-12) in second round action on Thursday, March 8, at approximately 2:30 p.m. CT on the SEC Network. He did so just moments after T.J. Starks hit a 3-pointer to put the Aggies up 70-69 with 4.4 seconds remaining, taking the inbounds pass following a timeout and racing up the court for the game victor.

"I don't mind shooting that and taking the onus on missing the game-winning shot", Robertson said in a quiet Mizzou locker room. "It's more of a just "hopefully we're still in" (situation)".

Porter finished with 12 points (5-of-17 shooting) and 8 rebounds, while younger brother Jontay Porter had 20 points and 8 boards.

It didn't take long for Porter Jr.to get in the game. And I think part of that was that guys were in foul trouble, too.

The key to beating Georgia is simply to not let the rest of the team beat you. The best case scenario is that they get off to a quick start and put the game away early.

"Coach (Avery Johnson) just told me to race it up the floor to get to the basket", Sexton said. "For me it was always Mike's decision to play or not play". Until then, Martin's team has time to further integrate Porter into the plans.
