A balanced scoring ledger, led by senior Chris Warren’s 18 points, stood out on the box score in Ole Miss’ 101-69 win over Mississippi Valley State Monday night at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. But as gaudy as the Rebels’ shooting percentage or point total were against the out-manned Delta Devils, the two most important things accomplished from Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy’s perspective was getting 11 players quality minutes and earning yet another win.

Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy wanted to see where his team was early in the season by scheduling tough opponents. Just three days after the Rebels opened the year with a hard-fought win over Arkansas State, they made a statement Wednesday night with a 77-61 win over Murray State at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum.
The victory was impressive for several reasons. Ole Miss (2-0 overall) continued to show its ability to guard teams and rebound well as a collective group while also shooting well from the free-throw line.
Wednesday’s win also came over a team that won 31 games last season and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, a place the Rebels want to be later this season. (November 18, 2010, Page 6)
