The Tigers took out South Carolina State on Monday night with a 102-51 win that marked the most dominant overall performance by the Tigers this season. Brown is a transfer from Oregon a year ago at this time, meaning he had to sit out the fall semester for Missouri. His arrival as a strong shooter for a team that lost Michael Dixon, Jr. comes a great time.
While Brown's long-range prowess was not working last night, going 1 of 7 from three point range. However, he scored 12 points in 20 minutes, went 5 of 6 from the free throw line and threw in three assists. It was a solid debut.
"He played great," Frank Haith said after the game. "He was 1-for 7 from three, but that doesn't concern me because I know that he's going to make threes. What Jabari brings is basketball IQ, moves well without the ball. He passes the ball. He's patient offensively, and I think that's needed with this team."
Brown averaged six points per game last season for the Ducks.
