COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -Missouri guard J.T. Tiller, the 2009 Big 12 Co-Defensive Player of the Year, left the Tigers' season opener against Tennessee-Martin on Tuesday night with an apparent left leg injury.
Tiller, a senior, was hurt early in the second half. He walked to the locker room under his own power, but did not return.
The injury occurred when the 6-foot-3 Tiller went up for a shot in the lane and was fouled by 6-10 center Dominique Mpondo with 17:28 remaining.
The Marietta, Ga., native averaged 8.4 points and led the team in assists (3.6) and steals (1.8) last season.
