Jabari Brown's 24 points help Mizzou beat IUPUI

Posted:

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Jabari Brown scored a career-high 24 points and Jordan Clarkson added 22 to help Missouri defeat IUPUI 78-64 on Monday.

The Tigers finished 5-0 under coach Tim Fuller, who filled in for Frank Haith as the head coach served an NCAA-mandated suspension. Haith will return to the bench for the team's Thanksgiving matchup against Northwestern in Las Vegas.

Missouri (5-0) scored 13 of the game's first 17 points and never trailed en route to winning its 22nd consecutive contest at home and its 77th in a row against nonconference opponents at Mizzou Arena.

Missouri's lone returning starter from a 23-11 season, Brown shot 7-of-12 from the field and 5-of-8 from behind the arc.

Ja'Rob McCallum scored 14 points and Ian Chiles added 12 for IUPUI (1-5), which shot 50 percent from the field in the first half but only 39.4 percent in the second.
