Frontcourt Powers Mizzou Men to 75-70 Win over Vols

Behind a balanced attack, the Missouri men's basketball team edged Tennessee, 75-70, Saturday afternoon at Mizzou Arena. The Tigers got scoring contributions from eight different players in shooting 56.5 percent from the field. Junior guard Jabari Brown notched a team-high 24 points and Missouri tossed in 40 points in the paint to earn the victory. The Tigers improve to 18-7 overall and 6-6 in the SEC. While the Tigers still relied on the three-headed monster of Brown, Jordan Clarkson and Earnest Ross, Mizzou got great performances out of its frontcourt freshmen. Johnathan Williams III (10 points, five rebounds), Torren Jones (career-high eight points, five rebounds, one block) and Keanau Post (four points, three rebounds) collectively had their best game of the season.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
