For a game that wasn’t going to count in the win and loss category, Ole Miss guard Dundrecous Nelson played Thursday night’s exhibition game against North Alabama like the Lions were the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Nelson was easily the most impressive player on the court at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum in a game that the Rebels won 91-62. The sophomore from Jackson, who took a hard fall in a scrimmage with Arkansas-Little Rock two weeks ago, showed the ability to score points (22) as the Rebels’ shooting guard and distribute (nine assists) as a point guard. Overall, Nelson impressed Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy, who needs him to be one of the main players that replaces the scoring of Chris Warren. (November 4, 2011, Page 10A)
