Rebs win despite second half shooting woes

The Ole Miss men’s basketball team didn’t miss Chris Warren’s scoring at all in the first half of the Rebels’ 60-38 win over Louisiana-Monroe at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum on Friday night.

Warren’s shot making was definitely missed in the second half of the season opener, though.

The Rebels built a 33-11 halftime lead thanks to shooting 12 of 27 from the floor (44.4 percent) and by using their size advantage on the inside to control the boards.

The shots that were falling in the first half didn’t transition into the second half though, as the Rebels connected on only 23.3 percent of their shots.

Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy felt that his team got passive with the big lead and just went through the motions in the second half. (November 14, 2011, Page 4B)
