KANSAS CITY, Mo. — University of Missouri men’s basketball junior Kobe Brown has been named Southeastern Conference Player of the Week, the league announced Monday morning.
Brown, with a career-high 30-point performance, helped lead the Tigers to a 92-86 win against No. 15 Alabama on Saturday.
He went 9 of 13 from the floor, including a pair of three-pointers, in addition to 13 rebounds for his fifth double-double of the season to contribute to Mizzou’s first conference win of the season.
