With the 74-70 win, the Tigers avoided losing to the Volunteers in three straight contests. The previous two Tennessee wins occurred in Knoxville. Missouri improved its record to 5-3 against the Volunteers.
Of Mizzou’s last 18 games, 17 have been decided by 10 points or less.
The Mizzou bench produced its most points since a non-conference contest against Western Michigan on Dec. 15. The bench consisting of Tony Criswell, Torren Jones and Keanau Post combined to score 17 points for the Tigers.
Leading the way was the freshman Torren Jones, who reached a new career high in points by scoring eight points. Jones also contributed his first career block and five rebounds.
Mizzou shot a season-high 61.5 percent from the floor in the first half. The previous highest first-half field goal percentage on the year was 58.3 percent against Long Beach State.
After scoring 15 points today, Earnest Ross has now posted a double-digit scoring effort in 21 of 25 games this season. Ross also reached a new season high in steals by eradicating four Tennessee possessions. Ross’ previous high was two steals in 11 games this season.
Junior Keanau Post scored his first field goal since the Mizzou win at Auburn on Jan. 11. Post finished the game with four points and three rebounds. Post also reached a season high in minutes played, tallying 15 minutes of game time for the Tigers.
For the first time in his career, Johnathan Williams III didn’t miss a shot from the floor. The freshman went 3-of-3, scoring 10 points and securing four rebounds. He also clinched his third game of the year at the foul line. Williams also iced wins at N.C. State and at Arkansas.
Brown has reached double figures in all 25 of Mizzou’s games this season. The last time a Tiger started a season with at least 25 consecutive double-digit scoring outputs was Doug Smith in 1990-91. Smith ended up reaching double figures in all 30 games for the Tigers that year.
Brown has reached double figures in 26 consecutive games dating back to the final game of 2013. He is tied with Alabama’s Trevor Releford for the longest active streak in the SEC.
Jabari Brown scored 24 points to mark his 14th 20-point game of the season. His 20-point scoring output is the most for the Tigers since Thomas Garner hit the mark 16 times in 2005-06.
Tonight’s game was Brown’s 50th as a Missouri Tiger.
