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.

Sure, there were other issues — like the Rebels 8-for-16 peformance from free-throw line one game after converting 22 of 23 opportunities against Murray State — but after Buckner went down with what head coach Andy Kennedy called a bruise to the inside of his right knee at the 19:13 mark of the second half, the Rebels were never the same on the boards.

This offseason has been an exceptionally busy one for the Ole Miss men’s basketball team.
And not exactly in a good way.
Shortly after the Rebels’ loss to Dayton that eliminated them from the National Invitation Tournament, sophomore Terrico White and junior Eniel Polynice declared for the draft, and sophomore forward Murphy Holloway announced he was going to transfer to be closer to his family.
Add into the mass exodus equation that senior forward DeAundre Cranston graduated and forwards Kevin Cantinol and DeAngelo Riley won’t be returning next season, and it becomes apparent why the Rebels are hoping several newcomers are going to be able to step in and contribute immediately.
During Monday’s Southeastern Conference coaches teleconference, Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy mentioned several newcomers he’s hoping can contribute this upcoming season. (June 30, 2010, Page 8)
