It was a different story in the second half as a Devin Patterson layup stretched the score to 45-42. A Jordan Smith 3-pointer moved South Carolina State (2-5) to within 2 at the 17:53 mark, but that was as close as the Bulldogs could come.

Missouri 78, IUPUI 64
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Jabari Brown scored a career-high 24 points and Jordan Clarkson added 22 to help Missouri defeat IUPUI 78-64 on Monday night.
Missouri (5-0) scored 13 of the game's first 17 points and never trailed. Brown shot 7-of-12 from the field and 5-of-8 from behind the arc.
Ja'Rob McCallum scored 14 points and Ian Chiles added 12 for IUPUI (1-5), which shot 50 percent from the field in the first half but only 39.4 percent in the second.
Missouri made 50.9 percent of its shots and took a 47-34 halftime lead, but IUPUI hung around, narrowing its deficit to 70-61 with 6:39 left on a jumper from Chiles. Missouri's Clarkson then scored the game's next five points to give the Tigers a 14-point lead with 4:13 remaining.
IUPUI's Chiles averaged 19.2 points per game entering the night to lead the Summit League, but his 12 points were his second-lowest output of the season. McCallum and Justus Stanback combined for 25 points off the Jaguars' bench, which outscored its counterpart 25-9 for the game after failing to register a point in both of IUPUI's last two games.
The game marked the second contest for both teams in the Las Vegas Invitational, but it had no impact on the outcome of the tournament. The schools will travel to Nevada for games on Thanksgiving.
