One driver was killed in the horrifying incident, which happened at approximately 1.54 am. Porter Jr. was not a party to the collision, according to the authorities. He was, however, excused from playing against Oklahoma City on Sunday night due to “personal reasons”
Porter, who was born on May 6, 2001, is currently a guard with the Denver Pioneers, according to Sportskeeda. The 21 year old has a height of 1.96m.
After a remarkable run with Father Tolton Catholic in Columbia, Missouri, and Link Prep in Branson, Missouri, he went to Denver after committing to the University of Denver men’s basketball programme.
Porter participated in 28 games for the Pioneers as a rookie in 2017. In 28 games, he scored 11.4 points on 41.9% of his field goal attempts and 41.3% of his long-range attempts.
When the Pioneers played the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles, he had his highest-scoring game with 26 points. Porter was out this year due to a torn ACL, despite having a solid freshman season. He continues to be enrolled in studies at DU while also being listed on the team’s roster.
Coban Porter siblings
Porter has six siblings, two of whom, Porter Jr. and Jontay, played briefly for the Grizzlies the previous season.

Regarding Porter Jr., he was selected in the NBA draft in 2018 and has since been a player who contributes to scoring. As the 14th overall pick, he was chosen by the Denver Nuggets.
Because of a major back ailment, Porter Jr. allegedly only participated in nine games last season.
Despite this, he agreed to a five-year, $172 million deal before his back issue worsened.
