Jabari Brown has found a home at Missouri

There’s a tattoo on Missouri junior Jabari Brown’s upper right arm. It reads “B4” — short for the Brown four — encircled by his name along with the names of his parents, David and Fannie, and younger brother, Jamil. Underneath the names, it reads, “Family is a haven in a heartless world.” So it’s an incredibly cruel irony that in the midst of a breakout season — one that has seen Brown play as well as any shooting guard in the nation and as well as any Tiger in the last two decades — Brown learned his father has Stage IV cancer.
