Jontay Porter

Mizzou came out of the locker room firing on all cylinders and never looked back, as the Tigers breezed past Long Beach State 95-58, in the first round of the AdvoCare Invitational at HP Field House. Mizzou advances to the semifinals of the tournament, and will face St. John’s.

Mizzou was led by its bench in the victory, as five Tigers combined to score 48 points off the bench, led by junior guard Jordan Geist and freshman Jontay Porter who scored 16 and 15 points, respectively. One game after posting his first career double-double, Porter set season-highs in points and blocks, as he turned away four shots in the first half.
