Hot-shooting Missouri whips Mississippi State

Saturday, 01 March 2014 19:41 Published in Sports
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Jabari Brown scored 21 points and Missouri set season bests with 62 percent shooting and 19 assists to whip Mississippi State 85-66 on Saturday.
 
Jordan Clarkson had 14 points, seven assists and five rebounds and reserve Keanu Post added career bests of 14 points and seven rebounds for the Tigers (20-9, 8-8 SEC), who shook off a pair of losses at Georgia and Alabama. The school is 14-2 at home and reached 20 victories for the sixth straight season, dominating against an opponent that entered with an RPI of 223.
 
A trio of Missouri big men — Post, Torren Jones and Ryan Rosburg — combined to make all 13 shots. Missouri shot just 32 percent its last time out, losing by 15 at Georgia.
 
Fred Thomas matched his season best with 18 points for Mississippi State (13-16, 3-13), which has lost 11 in a row — eight of them by double digits. The Bulldogs had a season-best 10 3-pointers, four by Thomas and three by Jacoby Davis.
 
Brown had five points and Missouri had a pair of 3-pointers in a 15-0 run that put the game away at 68-41 with 11:12 to go. Mississippi State went almost 6 minutes without scoring before Davis' 3-pointer near the mid-point of the second half.
 
Clarkson went end-to-end twice, getting a layup and dunk, during an 11-2 run that gave Missouri its largest lead of the first half at 39-26 with 3:59 to go. Post's tip-in at the buzzer, allowed after video review, put the Tigers up 45-32 at the break.
 
Mississippi State played without leading scorer Craig Sword, who attended his grandmother's funeral in Alabama. Sword averages 13 points.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis County woman is charged with felony assault after reportedly stabbing a Normandy police officer in the face with a steak knife.
 
KSDK-TV reports that Tinisha Washington is jailed on a $150,000 bond after the Tuesday night incident. Normandy Police Chief Frank Mininni says his officer is expected to make a full recovery and return to work next week.
 
Police say the incident began as a domestic disturbance call involving Washington and her mother. Washington was behind a locked bedroom door which she opened slightly when the attack occurred.
 
The chief says his officer was stabbed so forcefully that the knife bent. In addition to a charge of first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer, Washington is also charged with armed criminal action and resisting arrest.
 
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The University of Missouri has hired an engineering company to inspect all of its buildings after a walkway collapsed at a university-run apartment complex last week, killing a firefighter.
 
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the university hired the firm, Trabue, Hansen & Hinshaw Inc., to inspect 1,300 campus buildings, including storage facilities. University spokesman Christian Basi says the university isn't giving the company a deadline for completing the inspections.
 
John Smith, a structural engineer with the firm, says the buildings on the list are all across the state, including farms and university extension offices.
 
Lt. Bruce Britt was on the second-floor walkway of University Village Apartments when the walkway collapsed Saturday morning. Britt, a 23-year veteran of the force, was pronounced dead at a hospital. No residents were injured.
