COLUMBIA, Mo. -

The Missouri men's basketball team defeated Hawaii 92-80 Saturday night at Kansas City's Sprint Center.

Jabari Brown scored 23 points and Jordan Clarkson added 13.
   
The Tigers' lead remained in single digits for most of the game until Wes Clark fed Ryan Rosburg with a nifty pass for a two-handed dunk and a 10-point lead with just less than 8 minutes remaining.

It gave the crowd a dose of energy on a night when both teams struggled to put together any sort of momentum or extended run.
    
Moments later, Clark drilled a 3-pointer to extend the Tigers' lead to 13 points. Still, Hawaii's Garrett Nevels responded with a 3-pointer of his own. But the Rainbow Warriors couldn't get closer than 7 after that.
    
Christian Standhardinger led Hawaii with 22 points before fouling out. The Rainbow Warriors lost their fifth-straight game on the mainland.
