Ole Miss men’s basketball coach Andy Kennedy said during Saturday’s postgame press conference his team didn’t do things easy.
Saturday is Senior Day at Ole Miss and there has been no bigger player for the Rebels this season than forward Terrance Henry.

After losing three straight Southeastern Conference games, including a disappointing 73-60 loss to Tennessee on the road Wednesday, the Rebels responded with their biggest margin of victory in an SEC game with a 72-48 triumph over LSU. Ole Miss (16-12 overall, 6-8 SEC) did everything on coach Andy Kennedy’s checklist to earn a win over the Tigers, who defeated the Rebels 81-55 in the SEC opener for both teams on Jan. 7.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Earlier in the season, a big deficit might have spelled disaster for Tennessee. Now that the Volunteers have had a chance to absorb coach Cuonzo Martin’s unflappable attitude, it’s nothing more than a challenge to overcome.
Tennessee fought back from a 13-point deficit to beat Ole Miss 73-60 on Wednesday night to hang on to a share of fourth place in the Southeastern Conference with three games left in the regular season. (February 23, 2012, Page 6)

Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy understands just how important tonight’s home game with Vanderbilt really is. In the age of college basketball where RPI numbers have become critical to deciding who plays in the NCAA Tournament, Kennedy is well aware what a win over a quality team like Vanderbilt would mean to his young group.

Lifeless and looking for a spark. That’s the best way to describe how the Ole Miss Rebels played in the first half of their game with Auburn at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum Saturday night and what they needed to remedy the problem.
On the verge of letting another sub-par shooting performance take its toll in the loss column, the Rebels snatched a win from the jaws of defeat thanks to the heroic efforts of junior Murphy Holloway and some timely shooting from some players that had been lacking confidence.

STARKVILLE — Revenge was not a word that Mississippi State point guard Dee Bost used in his postgame comments Thursday night but it was quite obvious that defeating the Ole Miss Rebels was the main focus for the senior.
A little less than a month after dealing with comments directed at him from Ole Miss followers on Twitter, Bost gained a measure of revenge by helping lead the Bulldogs to a 70-60 win in front of a near capacity crowd of 10,364 at the Humphrey Coliseum. The native of Concord, N.C., finished with 15 points and a career-high 13 assists in the victory that was more one sided than the final score indicates. His floor game was praised by Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy, who has routinely said Bost is the best point guard in the Southeastern Conference. (February 10, 2012, Page 6A)
