Michael Porter Jr. was a superstar at Nathan Hale in Seattle, where he led the school to a state title.

"Well, it was $40 a piece inside so yeah we got a good deal out here".

That didn't stop him from firing, which is a good show of his confidence, but unquestionably hurt his team's chances of winning this game.

Playing his first game since MU's opener, on November 10, Porter didn't have much burst off the dribble and struggled with his jump shot.

Jontay Porter led Missouri with 20 points while Yante Maten of Georgia led all scorers with 21.

Porter has built an impressive 10-game run, averaging 13.8 points, 7.1 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.3 blocks in that stretch of games. 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. "(We) were able to just kind of grind to the finish". After a strong Missouri stand, Porter missed a three. and then after Rayshaun Hammonds made one of two at the line, Missouri called timeout.

IT WAS OVER WHEN: Robertson's wide-open corner 3-pointer rimmed out, and Missouri couldn't get another shot off before the buzzer.

Shortly after, the Georgia defense intensified, completely flipping the status of the half. But the Bulldogs countered with a quick eight points, and the game was slipping away for Missouri once again.

Teshaun Hightower: Georgia's freshman point guard was a revelation off the bench, scoring 11 points in the first half, including several long 3s.

Are the Tigers, overachievers during the regular season, more or less risky with Michael Porter the lineup?

"We came up short", Martin said, "but it's not so much what Michael didn't do". The freshman from East St. Louis, Illinois, also pulled down eight rebounds.

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.

It happened after a Missouri would-be game-winner from the corner missed. But as one of the only players not in foul trouble Thursday night, Barnett didn't give the Tigers a whole lot of anything. In Georgia's next possession, Maten grabbed an offensive rebound - eclipsing double-digit boards - and put it back up for his 19th point of the game. In his previous three seasons at Canisius, Robertson led the Golden Griffins in scoring 20 times, combined.

The Tigers' committed 14 first-half fouls. But Claxton missed both free throws. The Tigers struggled mightily with their shot, though, knocking down 22 of 64 attempts. The 12th-seeded Dawgs will battle Kentucky at 3 p.m. ET on Friday.
