MPJ: Michael Porter Jr. to return in SEC tournament

MPJ: Michael Porter Jr. to return in SEC tournament

The 6-foot-10 Porter was rated the No. 1 freshman in the country coming into the season.

Sexton drove the length of the court in the final seconds and hit a floater at the buzzer to give ninth-seeded Alabama (18-14) a 71-70 win over Texas A&M on Thursday.

Without Porter in the lineup, Missouri has rallied to a 20-11 record.

The one they'll be watching is Georgia vs. Vanderbilt.

Robertson is the nation's highest scoring (16.5) graduate transfer at the high major level (as of March 3).

Both games followed similar patterns, as well.

Freshman forward Jontay Porter was selected to the SEC All-Freshman Team, and also tabbed as Co-Sixth Man of the Year, by the league's coaches.

There's no telling where this Missouri team would have been able to become with a full season of Porter.

Brentwood High shines at indoor track and field state championships
Every year, the Bearkats open their Indoor season at Texas A&M, and it is a building he has competed in on numerous occasions. She improved her career best score and Trinidad and Tobago national record of 4,121 that she set at the SEC Championship.


For Georgia, Maten's 21-point performance comes after his 25-point showing against Vanderbilt in the first round.

Alabama faces Auburn in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Who Public Bettors Like: Missouri.

The SEC's No. 4 seed Kentucky Wildcats were largely criticized most of the year for being insufficient by head coach John Calipari's standards. Now they have a week to figure out how to thrive with him.

Barnett has averaged 15.2 points and 1.2 steals over the last five games for Missouri.

"No problem at all, because he's part of the team", he said. When he checked out 151 seconds later, it was 8-0 Tigers.

There was no such half in the rematch, as an angry Kentucky team blew Missouri apart, 87-66.

Michael Porter's name is expected to be called somewhere in the top 10 in June's draft, and with nothing set yet, it'd be unfair to rule him out of a top 3 pick. He scored 5 in Columbia.

European Union is U.S. ally and should be exempt from tariffs
German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged dialogue and warned that "no one can win in such a race to the bottom". Tariffs would "seriously impact the normal order of worldwide trade", the Commerce Ministry said.


MARK FOX: I hope it will help us. "The 6'10" freshman and the Tigers, though, would quickly cool off. You've got to respect the space of a player going through something like that.

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

Mizzou started the game on a 10-0 run, but then the Tigers offense went dormant. The only way Georgia likely receives a bid to the NCAA tournament is if they do it themselves by winning the SEC's automatic qualifier. Just getting in will be a vindictive moment for Martin and the program, but their spot on the bracket will undoubtedly mean more than they're willing to admit.

Without him, Missouri now is projected around a No. 8 seed in the NCAAs. He was clearly the more effective Porter in this game.

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

Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. played the fifth-most minutes of Missouri players Thursday, but shot seven more times than any of his teammates.

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

But it didn't take long for him to check in, as he subbed in before three minutes had gone by in the game.
