Several seasons of frustrating losses to Mississippi State were finally put to rest for the Ole Miss Rebels Wednesday night at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum.

Things couldn’t have gone much better for Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy Wednesday night. Not only did he get to witness his daughter, Meagan, perform a great rendition of the National Anthem at the start of the Rebels’ matchup with Arkansas at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum, he was able to watch Murphy Holloway play for the first time since Dec. 21.
