Andy Kennedy

Rebels headed to K.C. to play Badgers

Kennedy proves critics wrong with title win

COLUMN: NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Consider Andy Kennedy’s existence justified.

In the stroke of three wild days in Nashville, the embattled Ole Miss basketball coach not only ended speculation that he’d be fired the same season he became the program’s winningest head coach, but that his style of coaching and development couldn’t get the Rebels to the NCAA Tournament.

Rebels overcome plenty of pitfalls to make The Dance

Even in the midst of a wild celebration, Andy Kennedy strongly disagreed with his star players. Reginald Buckner, Murphy Holloway, Nick Williams and Marshall Henderson repeatedly told the media over the course of their three days at the SEC Tournament that Ole Miss’ five-game winning streak en route to their first SEC title since 1981 was a direct response to the Rebels’ awful, thought-to-be-season-ending loss at Mississippi State.

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

They had the big St. Patrick’s Day parade in Jackson and the Chicago River flowed green for a while Sunday, but there were no big public celebrations in Oxford.

Applying Ole Miss hoops logic to its beloved sport of baseball

COLUMN: The latest chapter of the ongoing Andy Kennedy saga will take place tonight when Ole Miss tries to avenge its recent “bad loss” to Texas A&M at home. As it stands, the Rebels are either on the very tip of the bubble or the very edge of the first teams out of the NCAA Tournament, depending on your preferred bracketologist.

Ole Miss basketball is the circle that must be broken

COLUMN: It’s the story as old as Andy Kennedy’s tenure in Oxford. (more…) (February 22, 2013, Page 6A)

Mindful of their RPI, Rebels head into ‘pothole’ season

COLUMN: Barring the unforeseen, Ole Miss basketball stands to break their NCAA Tournament drought and make the postseason tournament for the first time since March of 2002.

That’s barring the unforeseen, mind you, and the unforeseen — player arrests, exploding ACLs — have become sort of… predictable for this program under Kennedy. (more…) (February 12, 2013, Page 7)

OM fans would hate Henderson if he wasn’t their player, but he is

COLUMN: Saturday night’s often ugly, ultimately triumphant trip to Auburn — a place where so many Ole Miss basketball seasons past had hit a pot hole with a definitive “bad loss” in conference play — was marked more for Henderson’s postgame jersey-popping display to Tiger fans than anything on the court.
