Marshall Henderson sets the SEC record for consecutive games with at least one 3-pointer, but he’s shut out in the second half for a second straight game.
The support scoring we often write about was much better tonight. Jarvis Summers had 20 to lead the Rebels, he was 5-for-9 at the free throw line.
Martavious Newby had 15 points and 10 rebounds, Henderson had 13, and Aaron Jones had 12.
The Rebels played more man defense again and were better rebounding from it. They were plus-18 on the glass after being minus-8 when the lost 67-64 in Tuscaloosa.
Again, a little more man defense from the Rebels. This began last Saturday against Florida, and I think it helps them rebound better.
You give up something in the one-on-one matchups, but Ole Miss was plus-2 on the glass at halftime against Florida – finished minus-2 – and is plus-6 right now.
Marshall Henderson is having a nice floor game. He’s hit a couple of 3s but has made some inside-the-arc shots too including an old-fashioned three-point play.
He leads Ole Miss with 13 points.
Jarvis Summers has 12 points on 3-for-8 shooting. He’s 5-for-6 from the free throw line.
Martavious Newby has seven and a team-high six rebounds.
The Rebels are intent on not letting Trevor Releford get to the rim with the ease that he did when Alabama won 67-64 in Tuscaloosa.
Remember, Releford had a monster second half then, scoring 14 of the Tide’s last 16 points including the game-winning 3-pointer. Right now he’s got two points on 1-for-5 shooting.
Alabama is shooting 31.8 percent, Ole Miss 42.4 percent.
Backup point guard Derrick Millinghaus will not play tonight. He’s suspended, Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy has announced.
Sophomore guard Derrick Millinghaus has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules, Andy Kennedy announced Wednesday.
A sophomore from Schenectady, N.Y., Millinghaus’ production has tailed off dramatically after a hot store.
He averaging 15.3 points after the first six games. He scored in double figures seven times in the first eight games but only twice in the last 19.
His nine points in the first meeting against Alabama — the game that started the Rebels’ four-game losing streak — is his most in SEC play.
After scoring 16 against Auburn and 15 at Mississippi State in the first two SEC games, Millinghaus has been held scoreless five times.
He has been effective with an assists-to-turnover ratio of 2.4-to-1.1 and helps the Rebels play at a faster pace when he’s in the game.
