COLUMBIA -- Freshmen Stefan Jankovic and Negus Webster-Chan combined for 34 points and 12 rebounds as the former high school teammates led Missouri Basketball to an 86-60 victory over Missouri Southern to close out exhibition play on Sunday.

Jankovic came off the bench and flourished on the perimeter, hitting 8-of-13 shots, including three from outside the three-point stripe to pace the Tigers with 20 points. His former high school point guard, Webster-Chan, earned his first start as a Tiger and scored 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting to go with seven rebounds and three assists.

Webster-Chan earned the start after senior Keion Bell was sidelined with an illness. The Scarborough, Ontario, native quickly stepped in for Bell and even saw extended time running the point and did not commit a turnover in 28 minutes of playing time.

Missouri was once again balanced offensively, led by the two freshmen. Junior college transfer Tony Criswell also came off the bench and added 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting, while Laurence Bowers and Earnest Ross chipped in 11 and 10 respectively.

Missouri Southern kept the game tight in the first half thanks to the hot shooting of Marquis Addison. Addison had 14 of his team-high 19 points in the first half and the Tigers carried just a 42-33 lead into the break.

The game quickly turned in the second half, however, as an improved defensive intensity allowed Mizzou to start the second frame with a 13-2 run. Phil Pressey and Webster-Chan each scored four quick points and Missouri pushed its lead to 57-35 with just under 14:00 remaining.

Missouri led by as many as 31 in the second half and shot 63 percent over the final 20 minutes, while holding Missouri Southern to just 33 percent shooting during that same stretch.

The win caps exhibition play for the Tigers. Missouri returns to action on Saturday afternoon vs. SIU Edwardsville at 4 p.m. That game time was moved back one hour due to Mizzou Football's game at Tennessee next weekend.
