 COLUMBIA — John Brown will represent Missouri in the 2014  All-State SEC Basketball Legends.

Each year, the group includes a member from each of the 14 schools in the SEC. They will be honored at this year’s SEC men’s basketball tournament in Atlanta, which takes place March 12-16.

Norm Stewart represented Missouri in the 2013 SEC Legends class.

Brown played at Missouri for three years, from 1971 to 1973. When he left Missouri to play in the NBA, Brown had 1,421 career points. At the time, he was the all-time leading scorer in Missouri history. His record has since been broken.

Brown received all-American and all-Big Eight honors in his time as a Tiger. He was the Tigers’ MVP for the ’72 and ’73 seasons. He led the team to two 20-win seasons, the first in school history.

Brown was selected to the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame in 1991.
