STARKVILLE — Stefan Moody didn’t care about Ole Miss’ history at Humphrey Coliseum. All he was concerned with was helping the Rebels continue their upward trajectory for the NCAA Tournament. The junior guard certainly did his part to keep Ole Miss headed in that direction. Moody scored a career-high 29 points, and Ole Miss picked up just its eighth win all-time in Starkville with a 71-65 win over Mississippi State on Thursday at Humphrey Coliseum.
