Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. 'hurting for the team' after loss

Mizzou women's basketball upset by FGCU in NCAA tournament Mizzou Ready for Return to NCAA Tournament

Even with new players and a new coach in Cuonzo Martin, the Tigers head home from their first NCAA appearance since 2013 with the program's fourth straight loss in a first round.

"We're not an offensive team", Tilmon said.

However, it was No. 11 seed Xavier beating a No. 3 seed FSU 91-66 nearly a year ago to the day.

Graduate transfer Kassius Robertson finished with 19 points to lead the Tigers offensively in his final college game. Missouri hasn't advanced past the second round of the NCAA Tournament since 2001.

Rust was to be expected, but it was unavoidable to notice that during the first half's ugliest moments, no Tiger looked more lost than the one that was expected to put the squad on his shoulders just a few short months ago.

The Tigers started well enough as Robertson opened the game with a 3-pointer, and Missouri scored seven of the first eight points. In Friday's game against Florida State, it may be much of the same.

TURNING POINT: Porter Jr. fouling Cofer on a 3-pointer attempt with 9:29 to go. Savoy capped the spurt with a 3-pointer at the 14:13 mark for a 12-7 advantage. Florida State went into the break up 42-20, and all 10 Seminoles who played scored. Porter Jr. -who said last week after his first game back in the lineup after back surgery that he was not yet 100-percent-heaved multiple air balls. Porter returned in the SEC Tournament against Georgia and while he started off slow, he ended the day with 12 points. If the Tigers beat Florida State, Barnett will be eligible to play in Missouri's second round NCAA game. "We like to have as many people on the floor as possible that can make them and we want to spread you out and make you have to guard every inch of floor". "The best thing we have to do is keep our composure and just keep doing us". With that said, the Seminoles have the better offense, but Missouri excels on the defensive end, and given Florida State's recent track recent ATS, I'll take a shot with the free point and Missouri here. But they came in as the ACC's third-highest scoring team, averaging 81.8 points a game, and they showed off their offense by smothering Missouri in points.

If Mann is able to play against Xavier and FSU performs like it did against Mizzou, the Seminoles could be in store for a deep NCAA Tournament run.

It certainly would be understandable if he left early for the draft, he's projected as a top National Basketball Association prospect, Porter's circumstances are a bit unique. The freshman and preseason All-American said he probably won't make his decision on what's next for a little while. This is a facet of Porter Jr.'s game I can't fault him for, as it is hard to exercise when one has spinal disc fix surgery. They got the deficit down to six before FSU took the game back over for good. "I've got to get my body right, and just keep going forward step by step".

Pingeton said FGCU's style doesn't compare to any other team in the SEC but is similar to past nonconference foes the Tigers have played, notably Western Illinois and Indiana.
