Illini will test Mizzou's still-forming chemistry

Haith acknowledges it's all still coalescing but says so far, so good.

"I'm very pleased with where we're at," he said Friday afternoon at Scottrade Center, adding that Mizzou will get closer as it plays together more because players have bought in and accepted personnel decisions being made in the best interests of the team. "Usually when you make those decisions you see some guys pout, and we haven't seen that yet. So I will say that stuff has been really good."

Brown could become an integral ingredient in enhancing that.

"What Jabari brings is basketball IQ," Haith said after MU's 102-51 victory over South Carolina State on Monday. "He moves well without the ball, plays unselfish, he passes the ball and is patient. I think that's something that is needed on this team."
