The first nationally honored basketball player of the Norm Stewart era, Dixon Mo., native John Brown was an all-American and all-Big Eight forward/center in 1972 and '73, starring on the first two Missouri teams to win more than 20 games and to go to the NIT. He completed his career as the Tigers' all-time leading scored with 1,421 points, which now ranks sixth in school history. Brown led the Tigers in scoring in 1972 and '73, and in field goal percentage in 1971 and '72. He was a first-round draft pick of the NBA's Atlanta Hawks and also played professionally in Europe. Missouri's MVP in 1972 and '73, Brown's 41 points vs. Oklahoma State in 1973, stood as the Hearnes Center record for 14 years. He lives in Rolla.
