The Bulldogs spoiled Porter's return and earned a 62-60 victory against the hometown Tigers in St. Louis.

Missouri jumped out to a hot start, scoring the first ten points of the game. The Tigers drew up a play for their leading scorer, Kassius Robertson. First-team All SEC guard Robertson attempted just three shots in the first half. Georgia vs Missouri live stream is on WatchESPN. "I'm glad he actually got it out of the way, and we can move forward". "I think, more than anything, because of the foul trouble with some guys, we had to go, and I think we kind of put him in some spots that he probably wasn't used to".

Kevin Puryear and Jeremiah Tilmon both fouled out as the Tigers had no answer for Maten.

"We did a poor job of fouling", Robertson said.

"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. He has not played since Missouri's November 10 season-opener against Iowa State, a game in which he played just two minutes.

Teshaun Hightower came up big off the bench for Georgia, matching his career high of 13 points.

Georgia played as if their season depended on it, largely because it does.

Missouri will wait until Sunday to figure out where it will go next.

Success in the SEC Tournament may or may not be enough to reach another, smaller goal: getting off the 8-9 seeding line. The graduate transfer from Canisius finished the regular season ranking fifth in SEC games in points per game (17.5), second in three-point percentage (.444) and second in three-pointers per game (3.3).

Sexton finished with 27 points, none bigger than his final two. As things stand, ESPN's acclaimed "bracketologist" Joe Lunardi has Missouri projected as a No. 8, playing Butler for the right to most likely take on No. 1 Virginia. The hardest part of the game tonight should be how are Tiger fans going to get out of work to see it.

"I missed some shots I should have made", he said. "It's really how I feel, the flow of the game, and how he feels". "Something we can learn from is that the game's not over until the buzzer goes off".
