TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Ole Miss had a chance to defeat Alabama in regulation. The Rebels appeared to have an even better opportunity of knocking off the Crimson Tide in the first of two overtime sessions. By the time the second overtime really got going Saturday night at Coleman Coliseum, the Rebels were playing from behind and a late 3-point attempt to tie the game fell completely off the mark.
In the end, Ole Miss fell 69-67 to Alabama in two overtimes, the second time in less than a month the Rebels have played and lost a game in two overtimes in the state of Alabama.
Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy praised the effort of each team, but he lamented the fact that they weren’t able to pull out the game similar to the one the Rebels lost at Auburn on Jan. 14. (February 6, 2012, Page 2B)
