Ole Miss may still not have defended like coach Andy Kennedy would have liked, but his Rebels’ most complete offensive game in a few weeks more than made up for that fact Wednesday night against Texas A&M. Ole Miss’ version of the “Big Three” — Marshall Henderson, Reginald Buckner and Murphy Holloway — combined to score 46 points in the 82-73 victory over the Aggies at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum.
