Missouri go to 7-0 with win over Nevada

Posted:

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Earnest Ross scored 28 points, Jabari Brown added 24 and Missouri remained unbeaten with an 83-70 win over Nevada in the final round of the Las Vegas Invitational on Friday night.

Jordan Clarkson had 21 points for the Tigers (7-0), who converted 31 of 33 free-throw attempts.

Ross made 12 of 13 free throws and grabbed nine rebounds. Brown made four 3-pointers for Missouri, which finished 4-0 in the round-robin tournament.

Missouri will at least be tournament co-champion with No. 19 UCLA, which was 3-0 going into Friday's late game against Northwestern.

Deonte Burton led Nevada (3-5) with 20 points and three blocks. He was 8 of 10 from the free-throw line. Marqueze Coleman had 15 points for the Wolf Pack, which ended the tourney 1-3.

Nevada cut the Tigers' lead to five with six minutes left in the game, but Missouri went on a 16-8 run to pull away.
