Ole Miss men’s basketball coach Andy Kennedy didn’t know exactly what to expect from his team coming into Tuesday’s final non-conference game against SMU. After seeing his Rebels lose three straight contests away from C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum, Kennedy was hoping that the matchup with the Mustangs would be a little smoother and Rebels would be able to play with more rhythm on offense.
Unfortunately for Kennedy, the Rebels had to overcome a deficit late and then hold off SMU to post a 50-48 win that could only be described as a grind. (January 4, 2012, Page 6)
