Mizzou vs. Texas A&M Post Game Notes

With the 57-56 win, Mizzou now leads the all-timer series against Texas A&M, 15-11.

For the 30th consecutive game this season, Mizzou started Jabari Brown, Johnathan Williams III, Earnest Ross, Jordan Clarkson and Ryan Rosburg.

Johnathan Williams III set a new career high in blocks with five. Williams III’s previous high was four blocks against Western Michigan. The freshman also tallied seven points and eight rebounds. Williams has 47 blocked shots this season, No. 10 all-time in school history for a single season. Williams needs just nine more blocks to move into the single-season Top Five.

Jabari Brown continues to inch toward 1,000 career points in his time at Missouri. After contributing 20 points tonight, Brown has 945 career tallies at Mizzou and needs just 55 points to become the first Tiger with 1,000 points in two seasons since DeMarre Carroll (2007-09).

Jabari Brown has reached double-digits in every game this season. Brown has also scored 20 or more points in 17 games this season, including 12 during SEC play. His 17 20-point games in 2013-14 are the most since Kareem Rush in 2001-02.

Jordan Clarkson has reached double-digits in all but one game this season. The junior recorded 14 points and three rebounds in the win, including going a perfect 4-of-4 from the charity stripe.

The Tigers are now 18-1 this season when shooting more free throws than their opponent. Missouri hit 24-of-30 free throws. Texas A&M made 7-for-10 from the charity stripe.

Although the box score does not show it, Earnest Ross was a key factor in the Tiger comeback. With under 1:30 to play, Ross made five crucial free throws, a layup and had a steal, finishing off his Mizzou Arena career with a strong performance.

Torren Jones continued to be a spark for the Tigers. His entrance into the game spurred the beginning of Missouri’s comeback. Jones contributed five points, four rebounds and one assist. Over the past nine games, the freshman has shot 15-of-20 from the floor for an impressive 75 percent.

The Tigers have controlled opponents on the glass this season. Tonight’s 39-rebound effort was the 20th time the Tigers have outrebounded their opponent (Texas A&M had 24 boards). They have also tied opponents in rebounding four times.

Earnest Ross and Tony Criswell played their final regular season game at Mizzou Arena tonight. Ross contributed seven points, five rebounds and two steals. Criswell tallied two points and two rebounds in his final home appearance as a Tiger
