FGCU women beat Mizzou to advance in NCAA Tournament

Web Extra Mizzou basketball prepares for NCAA tournament

A total of 10 different Seminoles scored at least two points - by halftime- as they wore out a Missouri team with only eight players available for this game. However, in just his first two minutes of college basketball, Michael Porter Jr. sustained an injury that would eventually require spinal surgery to fix the L3-L4 spinal discs.

Wichita State (25-8) had 11 second-half turnovers as they had trouble keeping pace with the high-powered Marshall offense.

Kassius Robertson scored a game-high 19 points for the eighth-seeded Tigers (20-13), while freshman Michael Porter Jr. contributed 16 points and 10 rebounds in just his third game of the year. "I think she does so much better than scoring", Pingeton said. Not a bad first game for someone who hadn't played meaningful basketball since November 10th. Barnett's absence from the rotation forced Porter Jr. into a larger role than his limited game experience had him conditioned for, and at times Friday, it showed. 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. "Xavier is our next opponent, so we're going to keep doing what we do and keep moving forward". "I wouldn't want it any other way". Starting frontcourt of Jordan Frericks and Cierra Porter both fouled out midway through the fourth quarter after playing a combined 34 minutes, while Cunningham got her fourth foul on a charge with 8:20 remaining.

On Friday Night, arguably the best pair of brother National Basketball Association draft prospects took the floor for the first time.

Even when Frericks and Porter returned for the second half, Cunningham was Mizzou's only consistent source of offense. In their absence, Cunningham scored 14 of Missouri's 21 second-quarter points by successfully posting up the smaller Eagles for layups or fouls that led to visits to the free-throw line. "The season overall is moments like this where it hurts and highs". "After we settled down and knew (the situation), we just did what we had to do". He got to play for his dad, who is an assistance coach, and with his brother Jontay Porter. The Tigers can't have a 27 percent shooting night like they did in their last outing against Georgia. That doesn't mean there wasn't value in the distance traveled. But after flirting with getting a top-four seed and hosting NCAA Tournament games for the first time, Missouri ended on a sour note by losing three of their final four games. "She impacts the game in a lot of different ways, and I'm just really proud that she represents our university". "By the time that happened, all of us were dead exhausted. So we knew we had to minimize their run and maximize ours".

Or as coach Leonard Hamilton calls it, a team effort.
