The Rebels feel like they’re in the NCAA Tournament. From the locker room:
A Henderson-led offensive surge has the Rebels tied at 26 in what many are calling a must-win NCAA game.
Vanderbilt, playing its third game in three days, looked quicker at the outset, but Ole Miss has settled in.
The Dores got off to a quick 3-point start but are now 4-for-14 from the arc. Ole Miss is just 2-for-11 from there, three of those launched by Derrick Millinghaus, starting in place of Jarvis Summers, who doesn’t have the same stroke he had last night. Maybe it will return.
Lots of energy from Reggie Buckner this half but not a lot of production, 1-for-2 shooting, 0-for-4 free throws. He does have three rebounds, an assist and a steal. He’s been involved in a lot of plays.
Henderson got off to a slow start, missing his first five field goals, but he’s got nine points on 3-for-9 shooting and was big as the Rebels rallied from nine back to tie.
Vandy is plus-2 on the boards.
