Gateway Getaway: Everything Missouri fans need to know ahead of the SEC men's basketball tournament

That's the key for Missouri and Michael Porter Jr. before the NCAA Tournament. Robertson had a good look and let the shot go as thousands all held their breath.

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

A busy night for basketball but not for ticket sales as Mizzou was knocked out of the SEC Tournament. The Missouri player is set to re-debut ahead of March Madness, so get the lowdown on this star recruit. While Porter shot a low percentage, Mizzou outscored Georgia while he was on the floor and got outscored when he was off it.

Porter averaged 36.2 points and 13.6 rebounds per game as a senior in high school in Washington, and he was a McDonald's All-American after signing with Missouri. 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. Georgia did so thanks to 21 points by SEC Player of the Year Yante Maten, who paced Georgia with 21 points. One of his first acts was adding to his staff a little-known assistant coach named Michael Porter Sr., who happened to be from Columbia, Mo., whose two daughters happened to play for the Tigers' women's basketball team, who happened to also have a pair of talented sons - the elder of whom happened to be the nation's top-ranked recruit. No, he didn't get the start-he entered with 17:22 remaining in the first half. "He won't start the game". During the run, Mizzou missed 14 straight attemps and 16 out of 17 shots.

When the horn sounded and Missouri walked off the Scottrade Center floor, the countdown began for the NCAA tournament selection committee to untangle one of the biggest mysteries of March.

The Tigers were down 33-24 at halftime.

Porter was the No. 2 prospect in the 2017 recruiting class. Mizzou won at home over Georgia (Jan. 10) by a score of 68-56, with the 12-point margin of victory being the Black & Gold's biggest win in league action. For the Tigers offensively, only Jontay Porter seemed to find his zone with 10 first-half points.

East St. Louis native Jeremiah Tilmon brought the crowd to its feet with a tip-slam with just under 18 minutes to go in the game. "But we played - to me - about as bad on offense as we've played all year". However, Georgia followed MU's run with a 8-0 run of its own.
