Updated:

JOPLIN -- Marquis Addison scored 23 and Jordan Talbert added 22 as the Missouri Southern basketball team defeated visiting John Brown 83-63 tonight in the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center. 

Southern (1-0) opened the game on a 21-4 run, capped off by a free-throw from Stephen Atkinson. The Lions' lead reached 17 three more times in the half, the last on a bucket from Addison that gave the Lions a 37-20 lead going into the locker room.

John Brown (4-1) fell behind by 31 (55-24) after a dunk by Marquis Addison at the 13:34 mark of the second half. The Southern lead reached 32 after a three from Atkinson with 12:20 left, but over the next seven minutes, JBU clawed their way back to within 19 (68-49) after a three from D'Shon Taylor. 

The Golden Eagles got to within 18 twice, the second after a layup from Coleston Rakestraw with 31 seconds to go, but a bucket from Blaine Miller with 12 seconds left provided the final points of the night for either team.

Talbert went 6-17 from the field and 9-10 from the free throw line, and added 12 rebounds for a double-double. Addison was 10-16 from the field and 2-3 from the line as he added seven rebounds and four assists, to go with five steals. Greg Renfroe had 12 points on the night on 6-7 shooting that included three dunks. Matt Everson scored nine and RJ Leverette dished out seven assists. 

The Lions will be back in action next weekend, playing host to the Freeman Sports Medicine/Chris Tucker Memorial Classic. Southern will play Avila on Friday at 2 pm and Lincoln on Saturday at 7 pm.
