For a game that wasn’t going to count in the win and loss category, Ole Miss guard Dundrecous Nelson played Thursday night’s exhibition game against North Alabama like the Lions were the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Nelson was easily the most impressive player on the court at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum in a game that the Rebels won 91-62. The sophomore from Jackson, who took a hard fall in a scrimmage with Arkansas-Little Rock two weeks ago, showed the ability to score points (22) as the Rebels’ shooting guard and distribute (nine assists) as a point guard. Overall, Nelson impressed Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy, who needs him to be one of the main players that replaces the scoring of Chris Warren. (November 4, 2011, Page 10A)

Two points is all that separates Ole Miss senior Chris Warren from 2,000 in his illustrious playing career as a Rebel. The 5-foot-10 Warren, who was just named to the Associated Press’ All-Southeastern Conference first team Monday, should pass that elite scoring milestone Wednesday night when the Rebels take on California in the first round of the Men’s National Invitation Tournament.
Warren, who is averaging 19 points per game this season, just missed scoring 2,000 points in the Rebels’ loss to Kentucky in the SEC Tournament last Friday when he finished with 20 points. There are just 24 players who have ever scored more than 2,000 points in the SEC and only three others who have more than 2,000 points and 400 assists like Warren will be with one made field, or two free throws, against Cal.
The records are not lost on Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy, who said Monday as his team prepared to leave for Cal, that Warren will be remembered for his consistency more than anything else. (March 15, 2011, Page 8)
